Augustus Lewis Schlotzer, another German literary adventurer in the Russian service, and for a time secretary or Muller, was a more generally accomplished linguist. Unlike Muller, he was a skilful Orientalist ; and he was versed, moreover, in several of the Slavonic languages with which Muller had neglected to make himself acquainted, before engaging in the compilation of his great collection of Russian Historians. Por this he availed himself of the assistance of his secretary Schlotzer. Gottlieb Bayer of Konigsberg, one of the earliest among the scholars of Germany, author of the Museum Sinicum, also occupied for some years a chair at St. Petersburg; but he is better known by his ferocious controversial writings, than by his philological works.
