Edward Backhouse Eastwick (1814-1883) was an orientalist and diplomat. He "was an industrious writer, and some of his books are valuable. His best-known works are his translations from the Persian of Sa'di's Gulistan (The Rose Garden) and Kashifi's Anvar-i Suhaili (The Light of Canopus), which was dedicated to Queen Victoria and was better received than Gulistan."
