Biography

Georg Heinrich Ferdinand Nesselmann (February 14, 1811 in Fürstenau, near Tiegenhof, West Prussia (now Kmiecin, within Nowy Dwór Gdański) – January 7, 1881 in Königsberg) was a German orientalist, a philologist with interests in Baltic languages, and a mathematics historian.

At the University of Königsberg he studied mathematics under Carl Gustav Jacob Jacobi and Friedrich Julius Richelot, and oriental philology under Peter von Bohlen. In 1837 he received his PhD at Konigsberg, where in 1859 he became a full professor of Arabic and Sanskrit.

In his book "Die Sprache der alten Preußen" (The language of the Old Prussians, 1845), he suggested the term "Baltic languages".
