Abstract:

Born in Ireland, William Marsden (1754-1836) was a pioneer in the study of
oriental languages, in particular those of modern-day Malaysia and
Indonesia. At the age of seventeen he joined his elder brother to work for
the East India Company in Sumatra, and began researching the languages of
the East Indies. He moved to London in 1779 and became associated with its
scientific and academic circles, attending meetings of the Royal Society
and becoming a friend of Sir Joseph Banks. This gave him access to
vocabularies compiled by naval officers, and these, combined with his own
observations, allowed him to produce the pioneering works that made his
reputation. (His History of Sumatra and Dictionary of the Malayan Language
are also reissued in this series.) First
published in 1796, this work helped to fuel the growing interest in
languages and philology at the turn of the nineteenth century.
