Edward William Lane and his Arabic-English 'Thesaurus'

1989

Abstract

AMONG interesting material that came to light when Oriental Collections (then Oriental Manuscripts and Printed Books) moved from the British Museum building to Store Street in 1981 was a large brown paper parcel containing some notebooks. This was immediately identified as part of the work of the Arabic scholar Edward William Lane(1801-76) for his great Arabic-English Lexicon.
