Routledge Revivals: Oriental Essays (1960): Portraits of Seven Scholars (Routledge Revivals: Selected Works of A. J. Arberry #5) (Paperback)

First published in 1960, this work describes the lives and labours of six great scholars - Simon Ockley, Sir William Jones, E. W. Lane, E. H. Palmer, E.G. Browne and R. A Nicholson. These men were devoted to building a bridge between the peoples and cultures of Europe and Asia. To these biographical essays, Arberry has added a short autobiography and an eloquent plea for the further encouragement of Oriental studies.

This book will be of interest to those studying Middle-Eastern studies and the history of Orientalist study.
