Administrative / Biographical History
Teignmouth was a close friend of William Jones and succeeded him as the President of the Asiatic Society after Jones’ death. He edited the "Memoirs of the life, writings and correspondence, of Sir William Jones" using material provided by Lady Jones. An 1807 edition is held in the RAS Collections.
A typed list within the Collections suggests the letters from Lord Teignmouth were included with the Sales Catalogue of William Jones' Library, given to the Royal Asiatic Society by Mrs Chambers in 1955. The Council Minutes for 8th December, 1955 record "Letter of thanks to be sent to Mrs. Irene Chambers for a Catalogue of Sir W. Jones' Library".
