Portrait of Linguists is the standard biographical work in the history and theory of linguistics and a resource for all scholars of 18th, 19th and early 20th-century Western linguistics.
Edited by Thomas A. Sebeok, this text contains articles by eminent scholars in English, French and German. Ninety-one biographies are featured, including Wilhelm von Humboldt, Jacob Grimm, Franz Bopp, Sir William Jones and Max Muller. They constitute a mass of information on the leading figures in linguistics, and include bibliographical information in addition to revealing the authors' thoughts on the various schools of linguistics. Arranged chronologically by subjects' year of birth, this two-volume work is also indexed at the end of volume 2 and is a valuable storehouse of information on the seminal figures in the mainstream of Western linguistics.
