Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Memoirs of the Life, Writings, and Correspondence of Sir William Jones For the first twenty-two years of it, my authorities are ample and satisfactory: they consist principally of memoranda, written by Sir William himself: and, in describing the occurrences of this period, I have frequently availed myself of his own words. I wish, indeed, that I could have used them exclusively; but the paper is not altogether in a form to admit of publication. The account of the last twelve years of his life, in India, is chie?y supplied from my own recollection, assisted by information collected from his writings and correspondence.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Memoirs of the Life, Writings, and Correspondence of Sir William Jones In presenting the public with an account of the Life of Sir William Jones, I feel a particular anxiety, to guard against the charge of presumption for an undertaking, which may be thought to require a more than ordinary share of learning and abilities. I hope therefore, to have credit for a declaration, that nothing but the earnest solicitation of Lady Jones, who knew my affection for her Husband when living, and my unabated regard for his memory, and who conceived that these qualifications might supply the deficiency of more essential talents, could have prevailed upon me, to enter upon a literally career, so foreign to the habits of a life, of which more than fifty years are now elapsed.

Book Description J. Hatchard, London, 1815. Full Calf. Book Condition: Fair. Sixth Edition. 636 pages. Worn full calfskin with gold tooled edges and spine, head of spine chipped,marbled end papers and text edges, front cover, front free end paper and title page detached. Professionally boxed in buckram-covered boards for protection. Slight stain and age marks to last 3 pages, contents clean with very occasional age mark. Sir William Jones (1746-1794) was an English philologist and student of ancient India, particularly known for his proposition of the existence of a relationship among Indo-European languages. In 1783 he traveled to Calcutta and became entranced by Indian culture, an as-yet untouched field in European scholarship, and in 1784 he founded the Asiatick Society. Over the next ten years he produced a flood of works on India, launching the modern study of the subcontinent in virtually every social science. Of all his discoveries, Jones is best known today for making and propagating the observation that Sanskrit bore a certain resemblance to classical Greek and Latin. In 'The Sanscrit Language' he suggested that all three languages had a common root. 8.5 by 5.25 inches. Bookseller Inventory # 4213

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Excerpt from Memoirs of the Life, Writings, and Correspondence of Sir William Jones The account of the last twelve years of his life, in India, is chie?y supplied from my own recollection, assisted by information collected from his writings and correspondence. Of the events of his life, between 1778, his twenty Second year, and the date of his embarkation for India, in 1783, my information is less complete, although I have spared no diligence in endeavouring to collect all that could be obtained. I was in hopes that the recollection of his contemporaries at Oxford, where he occasionally resided, until he left England, might have supplied some material anecdotes, and that further information might have been procured from his companions in vv est minster Hall, or on the circuit; but my researches have had little success, and I am chie?y indebted to his correspondence for the information which I have been able to communicate.
