Observing “the life of a great scholar that should not be suffered to pass away into forgetfulness” is the main rationale of this brief journal written by Stanley Lane-Poole about his uncle, Edward William Lane. Edward William Lane is a British orientalist, translator and lexicographer. Most of his influential and widely cited works involve the history of Middle East studies. However, Lane-Poole did not write this for his uncle's scholarly reputation; instead, he wanted to keep the memory of Lane. Moreover, this book's structure is presented in a narrative biography form that is supported by other outlines of inquiry and prosopography.
