Cloth backed boards, vii+239pp. Inner joint cracked, one loose page, very occ. neat contemporary ink annotations. Collectable; Good Noreen belonged to the school of Neogrammarians. Whilst in Leipzig, Noreen was taught Lithuanian by August Leskien, a pioneer of research into sound laws. Noreen’s work, utilising the findings of the Neogrammarians, remained influential in the field well into the 20th century. His academic focus in the 1880s shifted to the field of historical linguistics, primarily centred on the Germanic languages. His grammars of Old West Norse and Old Swedish remain in use by scholars to the present day.
