William Marsden (1754-1836) British historian, linguist, numismatist and pioneer of the scientific study of Indonesia. For 10 years he resided in Bencoolen (Bangkhulu) in Sumatra where he studied the language and people. In England he was encouraged by Sir Joseph Banks and others of the Royal Society to prepare his material for publication. His comprehensive work "History of Sumatra" appeared in 1783 and in 1812 he published this grammar and a dictionary, which form the basis of all subsequent Sumatran linguistics.
