"The Wellesley Series" brings together rare and inaccessible original works from 19th-century periodicals in all areas of the humanities and social sciences. Academic periodicals from the 1800s were unique in two ways: they were written to be accessible to general readers, and the range of opinions expressed was wider and livelier than books published in the same period on the same topics.
The first set in "The Wellesley Series," "Language and Linguistics," documents such debates as the origin of speech, the identity and nature of the language Adam spoke, and the relation between language and thought with contributions from Max Muller, W. D. Whitney, A. H. Sayce, E. B. Tylor, Thomas de Quincey, Charles Kingsley, William Hazlitt, and others.
