1829 “ I am sure that no one can peruse those two splendid volumes without feeling that their author has been able to bring to researches apparently exhausted, a stock at once of new materials and of superior sagacity, by which he has thrown considerable light upon Hindoo Chronology. And if we descend to the later periods of history, he has certainly been sufficiently fortunate to find. a vast unoccupied tract to explore, in the annals of those States which he has been the first to describe. He has thus been able to combine, what few discoverers before him have had the good fortune to unite, new events with a new field, the varied drama of a history hardly known, with a theatre decked out in the most gorgeous scenery which nature can give, and the most sumptuous monuments that eastern art can add. Whether we consider the geographical, the historical, or the artistic additions to our knowledge of India communicated in this work, or the interest of the personal knowledge it contains, we may safely, I think, rank it among the most valuable, as well as among the most beautiful works upon eastern literature."-, Wiseman. 2813 TOWNSEND (M.)

1858 · For This work is the first Arabic and English Dictionary ever published.
* A valuable publication.--A work of this kind has been long wanting, and Mr. Layard is convinced that Mr. Quaritch has rendered not only good service to those who wish to study the Arabic Language, but to such Easterns as wish to obtain a knowledge of English."-A. H. Layard.
“He did not see why we should not encourage a knowledge of Oriental languages by establish. ing scholarships in connexion with our colleges after the French system. A wonderful future was destined for the East, and the more our representatives knew of the Eastern languages, the better it would be for our diplomacy.”-MR. Wise's Speech about the Diplomatic Service, House of Commons, April 22, 1858.
Catafago's Arabic Dictionary is indispensable to Travellers in Syria, Egypt and Arabia,--and will satisfy the first wants of readers of the Alif Laila (the Arabian Nights) Hariri's Sessions; the Koran, and even of the Biblical scholar.
This new Arabic Dictionary does not pretend to supersede the copious works of Richardson, Freytag, Golius, and Meninski, but it offers immense advantages over them, by a most discriminate selection of the Arabic words, every one of them being either in actual use now, or occurring in standard authors. As regards the English-Arabic part, the new work of Catafago is without a rival as every good and current English word is rendered into Arabic, with the pronunciation in Italics.
“There are actually no less than Eighty Millions of the human family who are either Arabs, speaking Arabic ; or who use that language for their religious services. The Koran is strictly forbidden by Mahomet to be translated or read in any other tongue.
" The Arabic language is spoken from the shores of the Mediterranean away to the plains of India. Not merely the Mahomedans, but also the Christians, and the Jews who inhabit Morocco - Algeria-EgyptTripoliArabia-Palestine, and Mesopotamia-speak Arabic.
o It is the religious language of Turkey-Persia-Central Africa-Bokharah-Tartary-Cir. cassi-Georgia - Arabia-Hindostan, and even parts of China ! The pious Mahomedan must learn Arabic to read the Koran. All Mahomedan Rulers use Arabic characters on the coins they strike.
• Now the inevitable course of recent events in the Providence of Almighty God, is daily bringing England into closer contact with these Arabian races.
“The recent War on behalf of Turkey, has broken down barriers which no human power can re-build; and opened doors that no re-action can close again,
“The transit to India through Egypt, and along the shores of the Arabian Sea--the prospective lines of Telegraph-the projected Railroads and Canals, &c., indicate sufficiently what science and commerce will soon develope; besides what may result from aggressive Missionary enterprize, or Political complications."
“The Committee rejoice to announce that already with the money paid to him for the AngloTurkish Lexicon, that enterprising publisher Mr. Bernard Quaritch had engaged a Syrian-Arabic Scholar, residing in London, to compile an Anglo-Arabic Lexicon in two vols."
