BY THE LATE
R. T. SIEGFRIED.
COLLECTED, ARRANGED, AND EDITED
MORE than a year ago, Dr. Todd, of Dublin, sent me a box containing most of the MS. remains of my deceased friend Siegfried, professor of Sanskrit and comparative philology in the Irish University. The papers, which consist of over three thousand fragments, of all sizes, written in many characters and languages, and some in pencil now almost illegible, were in great confusion; and it was not till the autumn of 1866-four years after his death-that I had leisure to decipher and arrange them.
On Sanskrit, Siegfried left the following:-(1) Notes on Pâṇini. (2) Notes on the Vâgasanêyi Prâtiçâkhya. (3) Notes on the Ṛik prâtiçâkhya. (4) Notes on Vedic Grammar: phonetics, declension, verb and accent. (5) Notes on the Atharvaveda, ix. 8. (6) Notes on the Pańćatantra. (7) Notes on Çakuntalâ. (8) Lecture on the Vedas in two recensions, both imperfect. (9) Vedica: (a) Vedische Literatur, (b) Volk des Veda, (c) Lehre und Glaube des Veda. (10) Sanskrit Literatur, nach Dr. A. Weber, Berlin, 1849: these are apparently notes of lectures delivered by Professor Weber, of whom Siegfried was, I believe, a pupil. (11) Notes for lectures on Sanskrit grammar: These were prepared for Siegfried's class in the University. (12) Short Sanskrit vocabulary. (13) Translation of twentynine hymns from the Rig Veda. (14) Three çlokas of R. V. vi. 75. (14) Translation of Atharvaveda ii. 33. (15) Translation (in English) of Çakuntalâ.
On Zend, there is a large body of grammatical notes.
On Greek: Notes on Greek phonetics. On Latin: Notes on Latin phonetics and Latin suffixes. On both languages:
