Walravens H. Schilling von Canstadt and His Correspondence with Julius Klaproth in the IOM // Written Monuments of the Orient. No. 1(9), 2019. P. 105—143.


The paper documents the relationship between the inventor printer and collector of Oriental books Schilling von Canstadt and the Orientalist Julius Klaproth by means of their extant correspondence. Both travelled to the Russian-Mongolian border and acquired books, both were connected with the Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg and Paris, the centre of Oriental Studies. Klaproth’s focus were the history and geography of East and Central Asia, Schilling’s book collecting and quality printing. Small wonder they got in close contact — Schilling profited from Klaproth’s Orientalist expertise, Klaproth from Schilling’s rich library and his experience with printing. The letters show an alienation at some point, which was never redressed nor explained, even though the relationship was not severed.
