Excerpt from A Grammar of the Arabic Language, Vol. 1: Translated From the German of Caspari, and Edited, With Numerous Additions and Corrections
Such, however, is the general neglect of almost every branch of Oriental study in England at the present day, that this state of m... atters is not surprising. The nations of the Continent - even those whose connection with the East is small or absolutely none - are better ofi. France can point to De, Sacy (whose immortal work has been the basis of all sub sequent grammars) and to Bresnier; Germany to Ewald, Schier, and Caspari; Holland to Roorda. It is inconvenient, however, for a teacher to use a book written in a foreign language, particularly if that language be German, which is, I regret to say, as yet but little cultivated in our Univer sities; and it is this circumstance which has mainly induced me to undertake the present work.
