As editor and contributor, William Ouseley (1767-1842) published this three-volume collection of essays between 1797 and 1800. Educated at Paris and Leiden, Ouseley became an honorary fellow of the royal societies of Amsterdam, Göttingen and Edinburgh. He researched extensively on Persia, producing important work on Persian handwriting. Several of his translations of works by fellow orientalist J. L. Burckhardt (1784-1817) are also reissued in this series. Ouseley's Oriental Collections consists of miscellaneous pieces contributed by a number of writers on aspects of Asian history, culture and literature. The volumes include translations of poetry and stories from Arabic and Persian, essays on the poet Hafez, Chinese vocabulary and the Korean alphabet, and catalogues of Turkish, Arabic, Persian and Sanskrit manuscripts. The diverse subject matter will appeal to readers interested in the nature and progress of oriental scholarship in the late eighteenth century.
