Excerpt from Contributions to the History of the Development of the Human Race: Lectures and Disserations
IT is a source of lively satisfaction to me to have been chosen as the medium of introducing to the English public the late lamented author of the follow ing Lectures and Essays, one of the most original thinkers Germany has produced in recent times, and the greatest of her philologers, as he has been styled by a competent judge. His work itself, how ever, will best speak for him, and needs no oommen dation on my part. Let me only add that, though these Lectures and Essays, now submitted to the Eng lish reader, are but chips from the author's work shop, as it were, yet I believe they afford a good glimpse of his eminent powers and brilliant genius as an investigator. But a word, I feel, is needed on behalf of myself as translator. No one can be more fully alive than myself to the difficulties of translation.
