Cathay and the way thither : being a collection of medieval notices of China. Volume 2 by Henry Yule( )

22 editions published between 1866 and 2017 in English and held by 1,348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publications of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made available edited (and sometimes translated) 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 The first series, which ran from 1847 to 1899, consists of 100 books containing published or previously unpublished works by authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and covering voyages to the New World, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India.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 volume, first published in 1866, is the first of two compilations edited by Colonel Henry Yule on contacts with China before the discovery of sea routes to the east. Yule's detailed introductory essay surveys the history of European contacts with the east, beginning with the Greek geographers and going up to the thirteenth century. He then presents the narratives of the Franciscan Odoric of Pordenone and other missionary friars in the fourteenth century

Hobson-Jobson : a glossary of colloquial Anglo-Indian words and phrases, and of kindred terms, etymological, historical, geographical and discursive by Henry Yule( Book )

118 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

The travels of Friar Odoric by Odorico( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The description of Odoric's journey to the East comes from the account he dictated upon his return to Italy, which was translated and widely circulated throughout Europe. It is one of the finest examples of extant fourteenth-century travel literature. The account used in this printing comes from Sir Henry Yule's translation, prepared in 1866 and still unsurpassed for its historic value and its faithfulness to the original Latin text."--Jacket

The river of golden sand. The narrative of a journey through China and eastern Tibet to Burmah by William John Gill( Book )

15 editions published between 1880 and 1997 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Gill (1843-1883) was an explorer and commissioned officer in the Royal Engineers. After inheriting a fortune from a distant relative in 1871, Gill decided to remain in the Army and use his inheritance to finance explorations of remote countries, satisfying his love of travel and gathering intelligence for the British government. He was awarded a gold medal by the Royal Geographical Society in 1879 for his scientific observations on his expeditions. This two volume work, first published in 1880, is Gill's account of his expedition from Chengdu, China through Sichuan, along the eastern edge of Tibet via Litang, to Bhamo in Burma, a region little explored by westerners before him. Gill describes in vivid detail the cultures, societies and settlements of the region, and their political and economic systems. Volume 2 recounts his travels across the plateau to the upper reaches of the Irrawaddy, partly retracing Marco Polo's route

Hobson-Jobson : being a glossary of Anglo-Indian colloquial words and phrases and of kindred terms etymological, historical, geographical and discursive by Henry Yule( Book )

22 editions published between 1886 and 2011 in English and Multiple languages and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dictionary of Anglo-Indian terms gives the definition and etymology of over two thousand words in common use in colonial India in the late nineteenth century. First published in 1886, it was written by the Scottish orientalist Sir Henry Yule (1820?1889) and Arthur C. Burnell (1840?1882), an English scholar of Sanskrit and author of a Handbook of South Indian Palaeography. Whereas previous glossaries focused on technical terms used by the Indian administration, this work aims at dealing with words that recur in the daily English of India: 'either as expressing ideas really not provided for' by English, or wrongly 'supposed by the speakers to express something not capable of just denotation by any English term'. Tracing the literary sources and Indian origins of words such as cooly or curry, but also - more surprisingly - tank or veranda, this dictionary is a fascinating resource for the modern reader
A narrative of the mission sent by the governor-general of India to the court of Ava in 1855, with notices of the country, government, and people by Henry Yule( Book )

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

17 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 124 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
