For the last couple of blog posts I have been concentrating upon Richard Francis Burton. I am pleased to say that the catalogue of his personal papers is complete and will be online in the very near future. Of course, he is not the only person who was interested in the material. August 10th will mark years since the death of Edward William Lane, a British Orientalist, who also sought to engage with the Arabian stories. Dr Theophilus Lane.
Edward William Lane is well remembered as one of the greatest of nineteenth-century orientalists. His reputation is firmly established with such works as Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians , his annotated translation of the Arabian Nights , and his magisterial Arabic-English Lexicon And even after his primary research interests transposed to modern Arab society and language, ancient Egypt remained in his thoughts and in his work. From onwards, Lane traveled and worked extensively in Egypt, twice ascending to the Second Cataract. His first book manuscript, Description of Egypt , a magnificent illustrated work that he was unable to publish during his lifetime, is primarily Egyptological in content, and his papers, now mostly in the Griffith Institute at Oxford, show a serious, imaginative commitment to the study of ancient Egypt. Had Description of Egypt been published as Lane intended, he would be remembered today as a pioneering Egyptologist as well as a great orientalist. It will examine the reasons why the impact of that important contribution was limited and suggest ways in which it can be understood and appreciated today.
