Title: A Comparative Grammar of the Sanscrit, Zend, Greek, Latin, Lithuanian, Gothic, German, and Sclavonic Languages
Written By: Franz Bopp
Edited By: H.H. Wilson
Translated By: Edward B. Eastwick
Description:

A founding text of comparative philology, Franz Bopp’s Vergleichende
Grammatik was originally published in parts, beginning in 1833, and by the
1870s had appeared in three editions in German, as well as in English and
French translations. Bopp (1791–1867), Professor of Sanskrit at Berlin, set
out to prove the relationships between Indo-European languages through
detailed description of the grammatical features of Sanskrit compared to
those of Zend (Avestan), Greek, Latin, Lithuanian, Gothic and German. This
translation (1845–50) of Bopp’s first edition gave English-speaking
scholars access to his important findings. Translated by Edward Backhouse
Eastwick (1814–1883), the multilingual diplomat and scholar, and edited by
Horace Hayman Wilson (1786–1860), Professor of Sanskrit at Oxford, this
work testifies both to Bopp’s magisterial research and to Eastwick’s
extraordinary skill in translation. This volume continues Bopp’s treatment
of the verb, and discusses word formation.
