About this Item

Reprint. The author joined the Indian Civil Service in 1871 and reached the Bengal Presidency in 1873. He would eventually become Magistrate and Collector at Patna and, later, Opium Agent for Bihar. In 1898 he was appointed Superintendent of the newly formed Linguistic Survey of India and moved to England for convenience of consulting European libraries and scholars. Grierson published scholarly works throughout his career: on the dialects and peasant life of Bihar, on Hindi literature, on bhakti, and on linguistics. In a celebratory account of his life, F.W. Thomas and R.L. Turner refer to the extensive publications of the Linguistic Survey of India as a great Imperial museum, representing and systematically classifying the linguistic botany of India. From the Introduction: The following pages were originally intended to form a part of the Grundriss der Indo-Arischen Philologie und Altertumskunde. Their preparation was greatly delayed by the demands of the Linguistic Survey of India. Bookseller Inventory # 3004665
