International Scholarship free pdf Excerpt from International Scholarship: Presidential Address Delivered at the Annual Meeting of the British Academy, July 21, 1920 Of our foreign colleagues we have lost two: the Comte de Franqueville and Professor Brugmann. The former was one of the first group of Corresponding Fellows elected to the Academy, in 1904, on the occasion of the meeting of the International Association of Academies in London. Of that list, nine have now passed away- only four remain. Comte de Franqueville was one of the representatives of France, along with MM. Delisle, Paul Meyer, Perrot, and Picot- and it would have been difficult to choose any one with better claims to represent an alliance between England and France. He was a member, and in his turn President, of the Institut de France, of which he was also the historian. His eminence as a student of civic institutions was attested by the numerous honorary degrees conferred upon him- but his special study was the laws and institutions of this country. In a long series of works he had treated of our political, administrative, and judicial systems- of our organization of public works- of our Parliament and Government- in short, he had devoted to our institutions an amount of thought and labour to which few parallels can be found (save in Lord Bryce's study of America) among treatises by British scholars upon the institutions of foreign countries. I may add that he had further linked himself to this country by his marriage with a brilliant English wife, to whose unique position in her adopted country remarkable tributes were paid at her death a few years ago. Professor Brugmann was a scholar of a different type, a comparative philologist of characteristic German learning and courage. His Comparative Grammar of the Indo-Germanic Langiuiges, published in five volumes in the years 1886-93, and translated immediately into English, has long been the standard work on the subject, and the foundation of all subsequent investigations. Philology, in the narrower sense of the term, has receded into the background in recent years, and few scholars appear to devote much thought to it- and I think I am right in saying that no work of comparable scale and learning and thoroughness has appeared to challenge the position of Brugmann. He was one of our latest German colleagues, elected along with Professor von Giercke in 1913. Of his attitude during the years which followed so shortly after his election, I have no information. The additions made to our number a year ago included Dr. Cowley, Bodley's Librarian, an eminent Orientalist, and during the past year Schweich Lecturer to our Academy.
