London, 1851 This valuable Dictionary is indispensable to all Sanscrit students, and of the utmost importance to all Philologists; it is offered now at an extremely reasonable price, Mr. Quaritch having bought up all the copies which belonged to the late students at Hailey bury College.

This Dictionary is the result of many years' most arduous literary labour bestowed upon it in India and in England, and if it had not been for the munificence of the East India Company, under whose patronage it was published, the publishing price would have been at least double, or, still more probably, the book never would have been printed.

1853 3506 REDHOUSE'S English and Turkish Dictionary, in 2 parts: Part I. English and

Redhouse, F.R.S.A., Member of the Imperial Academy of Science of Constantinople, &c. &c. in 1 stout vol.

sm. sq. 8vo. xxvi. and 1151 pp. (pub. at £2.) cloth, 32s B. Queritch, 1857

or The first English and Turkish Dictionary, published, written by Mr. Redhouse, a thorough Turkish Scholar, who resided for 20 years in Turkey, employed by the British and Turkish Govern. ments in their diplomatic intercourse; the Author of the only printed Dictionary of the Turkish Language, explained in Turkish, for the use of Turks.

This Dictionary has the Orthography of the Turkish Words, as also their correct pronuncia. tion and accentuation, two things never achieved, and the latter never attempted, even in the best Dictionaries published on the Continent. It cannot fail of being acceptable to the very great number of our countrymen now interested in obtaining quickly a competent knowledge of the language of our eastern allies; the greater number of errors to be traced in every page of the more voluminous and much more expensive continental works of Meninski, Bianchi and Hindoglou, is a circumstance which greatly deteriorates the value of their productions.

The Turkish Language is, in itself, well worthy of the labour of being acquired ; there exists in that language, a literature, mostly in manuscript as yet, it is true, as varied and as refined as that which is known to be found in the Persian tongue. In a political, and in a commercial view, the tongue of the Ossmanli merits as great attention as any, since its use, or that of its congeners, among natives of every sect or nationality, or among official people, is spread from Tunis in Africa, throughout the Turkish Empire, the northern half of Persia, Khorassan, to Independent, Chinese, and Russian Tartary. But it is as true, as it will appear singular, that whether from apathy, or from the fatal delivering themselves up into the hands of double sets of interpreters (one set consisting of Greeks, Armenians, Jews, or Levantines, who explain verbally between Europeans and Turks, and the other of Turkish writers, who reduce these verbal explanations into written forms of their own), the greater part of our merchants and consuls living in Turkey, some for periods of fifty years, are unable, with a few rare exceptions, to read a word of the language, or perhaps to understand it when read to them ; and many are incapable of uttering a single phrase in common conversation. The fact, however, of servants, working engineers, and others, picking up Turkish in a short time, without books or aids of any kind, is sufficient to indicate that there is nothing peculiarly difficult in the language itself; while the mere mechanical difficulty of the handwriting, as is known to all students, is equally easy to be got over with a little practice.

"A creditable publication. An English Turkish Dictionary was a great desideratum and you have been fortunate in getting the best Turkish scholar of the day to write it. " British Museum, Oct. 16, 1836.
