The voyage of John Huyghen van Linschoten to the East Indies : from the old English translation of 1598 : the first book, containing his description of the East by Jan Huygen van Linschoten( )

77 editions published between 1885 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publications of the Hakluyt Society made available edited early accounts of exploration. The first series, which ran from 1847 to 1899, consists of 100 books containing published or previously unpublished works by authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and covering voyages to the New World, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India. This account of the East Indian travels of John Huyghen van Linschoten, originally published in the Netherlands in 1596 and translated into English in 1598, was published by the society in 1885 using an edited version of the early translation, supplemented with explanatory notes. It provides a rich source of information about Portuguese trade with the East Indies, as well as descriptions of the fauna, flora and indigenous peoples of the regions he visited, from the Azores and St Helena to Java and Sumatra
Hobson-Jobson : a glossary of colloquial Anglo-Indian words and phrases, and of kindred terms, etymological, historical, geographical and discursive by Henry Yule( Book )

116 editions published between 1903 and 2016 in English and Indo-European and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Words of Indian origin began appearing in English since the end of the reign of Elizabeth I, and more after the acquisition of the sub-continent by the East India Company. Many vocabularies and glossaries have appeared, the great majority of which dealt with all varieties of technical terms encountered by those in service in the Indian administration. This volume deals with a selection of such terms, adding terms from botany, zoology, geography, and terms from other countries which have made their way into general discourse throughout the region. This volume attempts to present the class of words which recur constantly in the daily lives of the English in India, and which have become naturalized in the English language

Hobson-Jobson : the definitive glossary of British India by Henry Yule( Book )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hobson-Jobson is a unique work of maverick scholarship. Compiled in 1886 by two India enthusiasts, it documents the words and phrases that entered English from Arabic, Persian, Indian, and Chinese sources - and vice versa. Described by Salman Rushdie as 'the legendary dictionary of British India' it shows how words of Indian origin were absorbed into the English language and records not only the vocabulary but the culture of the Raj. It encompasses aspects of the history, trade, peoples, and geography of Asia in entries that are at once authoritative and playful. Like the Oxford English Dictionary, Hobson-Jobson included illustrative quotations that were drawn from a wide range of travel texts, histories, memoirs, and novels, creating a canon of English writing about India. The definitions frequently slip into anecdote, reminiscence, and digression, and they offer intriguing insights into Victorian attitudes to India and its people and customs. With its delight in language, etymology, and puns, Hobson-Jobson has fascinated generations of writers from Rudyard Kipling to Tom Stoppard and Amitav Ghosh. This selected edition retains the range and idiosyncrasy of the original, and Kate Teltscher's introduction and notes provide fascinating information on the glossary's creation, and its significance for the English language
