Excerpt from On Yuan Chwang's Travels in India: 629 645 A. D As will be seen from Dr. Bushell's obituary notice of Thomas Watters, republished from the Journal of he 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 Yüan-Chwang in India in the 7th Century A. D. The only translation into English of the Travels and the Life of Yüan-Chwang, the one made by the late Mr. Beal, contains many mistakes. As Mr. Watters 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 Yüan-Chwang's most interesting and valuable records. The news that he had left such a work was therefore received with eager pleasure by all those interested in the history of India. And Mr. F. F. Arbuthnot, who had so generously revived our Oriental Translation Fund, was kind enough to undertake to pay for the cost of publishing the work in that series. I was asked by the Council to be the editor, and was fortunate enough to be able to receive the cooperation of Dr. S. W. Bushell C. M. G., late medical officer attached to our embassy at Peking. We have thought it best to leave Mr. Watters's Ms. untouched, and to print the work as it stands. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from On Yuan Chwang's Travels in India: 629-645 A. D As regards the author's method of transliterating the name of the pilgrim I annex the copy of a letter by myself in the Journal of our society. Yuan-chwang is the correct presentation of the present Pekinese pronunciation. What would be the correct presentation, in English letters, of the way in which the pilgrim himself pronounced it, is not known. Full indices by the author and ourselves and two maps which Mr. Vincent Smith has been kind enough to undertake, will be included in the.l second volume, which is in the press, and which we hope to bring out in the course of next year.
