Robert Durie Osborn (1835-1889) Lieutenant-colonel, serving in India and Afghanistan for twenty five years. ‘Osborn was a serious thinker on both religious and political topics . While in India he was a conscientious student of oriental religions, and spent fourteen years digesting the tangled materials for his two works [the above]. These books are highly valued by serious students. They are models of lucid and graceful treatment of a perplexing subject’. D.N.B.
