[SAUSSURE, FERDINAND DE] / BALLY, CHARLES & SÉCHEHAYE, ALBERT (EDITORS):
Course de linguistique générale. Lausanne & Paris, Librairie Payot & Cie, 1916.
. Pp. 336, (1). Original printed wrappers. With some browning a/o spotting. Ferdinand de Saussure (1857-1913), a Swiss linguist whose ideas on structure in language laid the foundation for much of the approach to and progress of the linguistic sciences in the 20th century. This work comprise a reconstruction of his lecture notes and some other materials by two of his students. Saussure became enormously influential as a teacher, first at the École des Hautes Études in Paris (1881-1891) and later on as professor of lingustics at the University of Geneva (1907-13). He claimed that language must be considered as a social phenomenon, a structured system which can be viewed synchronically (as it exists at any particular time) and diachronically (as it changes in the course of time). Hereby he formalized the basic approaches to language study and declared that the principles and methodology of each approach are distinct and mutually exclusive.

Concentrating on a historical analysis of the verb, he furnished the first trustworthy materials for a history of the languages compared. "He thereby established the science of comparative linguistics [...] Bopp's importance lies in the fact that he was no mere grammarian but considered philology to be an essential part of the history of civilization: out of their vocabulary he drew an accurate picture of the material and intellectual life of the earliest Indo-European people" (PMM).

The beautiful plates depicting numerous objects and actions were designed by Czech to provide an effective, simple method by which the teacher could communicate complicated ideas to the student. Czech was professor at the famous Wiener-Taubstummen-Institut. Baker Collection 198. Guyot & Guyot p. 18.

HARPOCRATION, VALERIUS:
