Description

As will be seen from Dr Bushell’s obituary notice of Thomas Watters, republished from the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society for 1901 at the end of those few words of preface, Mr Watters left behind him a work, ready for the press, on the travels of Yuan Chwang in India in the 7th Century A D. The only translation into English of the Travels and the Life of Yuan-Chwang, the one made by the late Mr Beal, contains many mistakes.

As Mr waters probably knew more about Chinese Buddhist Literature than any other European scholar, and had, at the same time, a very fair knowledge both of Pali and Sanskrit, he was the very person most qualified to correct those mistakes and to write an authoritative work on the interpretation of Yuan-Chwang’s most interesting and valuable records.

This Posthumous work by an author whose untimely death was an irreparable loss to historical science, whose rare qualities of mind and the breadth of whose knowledge earned the admiration of those most qualified to judge, and whose personal qualities endeared him to all who knew him.
