London: 1876. First Edition. Paperback. Very Good Condition. Item #196914
A collection of over 400 rare and uncommon Offprints from the prestigious Journal of The Royal Asiatic Society. A huge and wide ranging selection that would prove very expensive to buy individually and be very time consuming to assemble, if you even could easily do so. A full list of the titles in the collection is available on request. The condition will reflect the fragile and ephemeral format of the production; very good overall. PLEASE NOTE: These are not reprints or extracts, they are rare Offprints, not extracts or reprints. An offprint is produced by the publisher's of journals in very small quantities, with the usual intention of allowing the author to present them to friends or colleagues and for review. The printing is done simultaneously with the main journal, and then they are bound up in specially printed wrappers with the author's name and title printed. They are considered quite collectable and desirable due to their intimate connection to the author of the work, rather than the more mass produced nature of the full journal. The Royal Asiatic Society is dedicated to the serious study of the culture, history and languages of Asia. Founded in 1823 by the Sanskrit scholar Sir Henry Thomas Colebrooke, and has counted many distinguished and important explorers, writers and eminent individuals among its members, including Sir Richard Burton (1821-90), Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), and Sir Wilfred Thesiger.
