Abstract:

The present volume follows the author's tradition of bringing together
at certain intervals selections of articles which more often than not
had previously been published in not easily accessible places, or
which had not been published before. These papers do not typically
represent mere reprints but in most instances thoroughly revised
versions.

This volume contains twelve articles organized under three headings,
"Programmatic Papers in the History of Linguistics", "Studies in
Linguistic Historiography", and "Sketches historiographical and
(auto)biographical", plus as an appendix a complete list of Zellig
Harris' writings as an illustration of Koerner's penchant for and
belief in the importance of good bibliographies as a basis for
historical research. While the first two sections, which take up the
bulk of the volume, either show the author as an historian engag� or
demonstrate his work as a historiographer of 19th and 20th century
linguistics, the third section is much shorter and less heavy
going. Indexes of Biographical Names and of Subjects, Terms &
Languages round out the volume, which also contains a number of
portraits of linguists and other illustrations.
