Subject: Re: Today in the Historical Sciences
To: darwin-l@ukanaix.cc.ukans.edu

To Sally's recommendations of portraits of historical linguists can be
added:

Tagliavini, Carlo. 1972 [6th ed.]. Le origini delle lingue neolatine.
	Bologna: Patron.

T. offers photos and brief surveys of the major contributions not only of
Romanists (some of which, such as F. Diez, G.I. Ascoli, W. Meyer-Luebke,
belong in any dictionary of heroes and founding fathers of historical
linguistics) but also a number of Indo-Europeanists. He also gives
excellent annotated bibliography. An earlier edition is available also in
Spanish translation (Mexico DF, 1968 -- still in stock a couple of years
ago).
