TRÜBNER'S ORIENTAL SERIES (KEGAN PAUL, TRENCH, TRÜBNER & COMPANY)
Series Note: This hardback series of books in the field of Oriental studies was launched by Nicholas Trübner's firm Trübner & Co. in 1878. From 1890 it was published by Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner & Co., Ltd. (the successor firm to Trübner & Co.)

"Trübner's Oriental Series was set up by Kegan Paul Trench & Trübner in 1890. It was undoubtedly the most important English language series in oriental studies of the period, publishing works between 1890 and 1930. The books in the series reflected the scholarly interests of the time, and covered an enormous variety of topics pertaining to Asia, Africa and the Middle East: language and literatures; religion and philosophy; history and economics, to name but a few.

Studies by well-known scholars include Romesh Chunder Dutt on the economic history of India, Emil Bretschneider on the Chinese sources of Asian geography, Donald Campbell on Arabian medicine and William MacGovern on Buddhist philosophy. There are also insights into the early studies of Feng-shui, Hindu mythology and natural history.

Many of the titles in the original series have long been out of print. Routledge are thrilled to be reissuing 102 volumes from the original series. The volumes are available as an entire set, as individual volumes and also as mini-sets covering: Africa, the Ancient Near East, Arabic history and culture, Buddhism, China, Indian history, literature, religion and philosophy, Islam, Japan, Persia and Southeast Asia."
