Urteile der Presse.

,,Bei dem grossen Umfange, den die philologischen Disziplinen heutzutage erreicht haben, wird es einem Jeden, der genothigt war, sich seiner Studien wegen in benachbarte Facher einzuarbeiten, als ein ausserordentlich zweck- massiges Unternehmen erscheinen, wenn der Stand des Wissens innerhalb der einzelnen Disziplinen einmal in einer iibersichtlichen und streng wissenschaft- lichen Publikation zusammengefasst und damit einerseits eine feste Grundlage fiir die weitere Forschung, und auf der anderen Seite ein leicht zu hand- habendes Orientirungsmittel fiir Alle, die dem betreffenden Fache ferner stehen, geschaffen wird. In diesem Sinne hat sich der bekannte Triibnersche Verlag durch die Verbffentlichung der weit und breit geschatzten Grundrisse der Germanischen und der Romanischen Philologie ein grosses Verdienst um die Wissenschaft erworben.

Der Germanistik und der Romanistik folgt nun die iranische Philologie, und es ist ein schiines Zeugniss fiir die Vertreter einer Wissenschaft, die offiziell wenigstens keine Stelle unter den Lehrstiihlen an deutschen Hoch- schulen gefunden hat, dass schon nach verhaltnissmassig kurzer Zeit ernsten Betriebes ein Punkt erreicht ist, von dem aus eine Riickschau sich verlohnt. . .

{Deutsche Littcyatnrzeitnng l 8 g^, Nr. g.i.)

,,Dem bereits vollendeten Grundriss der germanischen, dem seiner VolR endung nahen Grundriss der romanischen Philologie schliesst sich, von demselben um fiie linguistischen Studien hoch verdicntcn Verleger ins Leben gerufen, ein ebensolches Handbuch fiir die iranische Philologie an; ein von Biihler herausgegebener Grundriss der indo-arischen Philologie und Alterthums- kunde ist ebenfalls bei Triibner bereits angezeigt, und bei einem anderen Verleger ist ein von Jagic im Verein mit anderen Gelehrten vorbereiteter Grundriss der slavischen Philologie in Sicht. Das zur Neige gehende Jahr- hundert, das in seinen Anfangen die kiihnen und frischen Eroberungsziige in neue und unbekannte Gebiete der Sprachwissenschaft sah, sieht nun in seinem Ausgange diese bequemen Orientierungsbiicher, die auch dem Neuling das Einwohnen in den grossen, von der indogermanischen Linguistik und Philologie jetzt eingenommenen Strecken leichter machen. Jeder, der auf dem Gebiete der vergleichenden Indogermanistik arbeitet, wird dafiir in hohem Grade dankbar sein miissen, dass in die Reihe dieser Grundrisse auch ein iranischer aufgenommen worden ist. Denn gerade die iranischen Sprachen sind es, die, ahnlich wie die keltischen, bei sehr vielen Sprachforschern noch immer etwas im Hintertreffen stehen und wo die Hulfsmittel zum Studium, besonders bei den jiingeren Sprachen und Dialekten, aus naheliegenden Griinden schwerer zuganglich sind, als sonst. Hier wird offenbar der iranische Grundriss eine willkommene und sehr dankenswerthe Abhiilfe schaffen, ab- gesehen davon, dass auch auf dem speciellen Gebiete der iranischen Studien selbst dieser erste Versuch einer zusammenfassenden Darstellung die wohl- thatigsten Folgen haben diirfte. . . .“ (Literarisches Centralhlatt Nr. 21.)
