Teltscher writes in her introduction: "A.C. Burnell and Henry Yule's Hobson-Jobson (1886) is a glossary unlike any other. Multilingual and encyclopaedic in range [it] traces the relations between Asia and Europe through the histories of word....The glossary embraces aspects of the people, customs, government, geography, commerce, cuisine and botany of Asia. It is a unique work of unparalleled scholarship: a lexicon of words and phrases that enter English from Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Persian, Indian and Chinese sources -- and vice versa."
