From Sanskrit to Brazil. Vignettes and essays upon languages.

London: Hamish Hamilton, [1952]. First edition, 12mo, pp. [14], 146; about fine throughout in a very good jacket. This copy inscribed "To Vernon Watkins who conveys dignity with delight & inextricably mingles form and thought. Gratefully, Eric Partridge, 17-xi-61." In this copy Partridge has altered the word "languages" on the title page as well as on the dust jacket to read 'language," and he has also scribbled through the price on the dust jacket; on the verso of the half-title, Partridge has written in "OP" (for out-of-print) next to 5 of the 17 works in the list of books by him; and he has made corrections in the text on p. 23, 34, and on p.65 where he has written a 2-line note in the bottom margin, signed "E. P." There are also manuscript corrections by Partridge on the rear flap of the jacket, and on the back panel. Item #28111
