PREFACE
The South Asia collection (books and manuscripts) formed the original
nucleus of the School's library, the volume bearing the Library's first
accession number being a work on Sanskrit grammar! The collection orig-
inally consisted of the books previously in the possession of the London
Institution, and these were soon vastly supplemented and greatly enriched
by the transfer to this library of the oriental collection of University
College and King's College, London. King's College Library included many
valuable and rare books and manuscripts presented to the College by the
orientalist William Marsden in 1835.
This list contains 250 manuscripts: 5 in Assamese, 3 in Bengali, 3 in
Bihari, 1 in Gujarati, 5 in Hindi, 7 in Marathi, 2 in Oriya, 35 in Pali, 4
in Panjabi, 2 in Prakrit, 1 in Rajasthani, 162 in Sanskrit, 1 in Sindhi and
19 in Urdu. Manuscripts which are partially in a non-Indian language,
such as those which comprise Pali and Burmese, Pali and Cambodian, Pali and
Sinhalese, Sanskrit and Sinhalese, are not included in this list. The
manuscripts are written on palm-leaves, birch-bark, thin wooden sheets,
Nepali yellow paper, Kashmiri paper, ordinary paper, etc. Some of the
manuscripts on palm-leaves are painted or covered in decorative ornamental
designs, and some in gold and red paint; the wooden boards in which they
are kept are often similarly adorned.
Most of these manuscripts have been given to the library. Some of
them, especially those from the William Marsden collection are rare,_e.<7.
two poems in Marathi on the Old and New Testaments, entitled Adi-Purana and
Deva-Purana, by Thomas Stephens SJ, 18th century, are most valuable. Many
of the Library's printed works and some of its manuscripts are intrinsically
valuable and rare, but the present policy is not to buy manuscripts so much
as to acquire printed works for academic purposes.
Manuscripts described in this list are arranged alphabetically by lan- ^
guage. Within each language items are arranged alphabetically by author
or by title if anonymous. For each item, the entry consists of author,
title, brief subject, important features, the type of paper or material on
which the manuscript is written, the number of folios or pages, date if any,
size in inches and manuscript number. Manuscripts in two languages, such
as Hindi § Panjabi or Sanskrit § Prakrit are listed after those in the main
language concerned. There is an author, title and language index at the
end. There are many Indian dating systems, and sometimes it is difficult
to establish the equivalent Christian date. I have used A. Cunningham's
Book of Indian eras with tables for calculating Indian dates, (Calcutta,
1833) for this purpose.

PREFACE The South Asia collection (books and manuscripts) formed the original nucleus of the School's library, the volume bearing the Library's first accession number being a work on Sanskrit grammarl The collection orig inally consisted of the books previously i n the possession of the London Institution, and these were soon vastly supplemented and greatly enriched by the transfer to this library of the oriental collection of University College and King's College, London. King's College Library included many valua ble and rare books and manuscripts presented to the College by the orientalist William Marsden in 1835. This list contains 250 manuscripts: 5 in Assamese, 3 in Bengali, 3 in Bihari, 1 in Gujarati, 5 in Hindi, 7 in Marathi, 2 in Oriya, 35 in Pali, 4 in Panj abi, 2 in Prakrit, 1 in Rajasthani, 162 in Sanskrit, 1 in Sindhi and 19 in Urdu. Manuscripts which are partially in a non Indian language, such as those which comprise Pali and Burmese, Pali and Cambodian, Pali and Sinhalese, Sanskrit and Sinhalese, are no t included in this list. The manuscripts are written on palm leaves, birch bark, thin wooden sheets, Nepali yellow paper, Kashmiri paper, ordinary paper, etc. Some of the manuscripts on palm leaves are painted or covered in decorative ornamental designs, a nd some in gold and red paint; the wooden boards in which they are kept are often similarly adorned. Most of these manuscripts have been given to the library. Some of them, especially those from the William Marsden collection are rare,_e.0. two poems in Ma rathi on the Old and New Testaments, entitled Adi Purana and Deva Puranaj by Thomas Stephens SJ, 18th century, are most valuable. Many of the Library's printed works and some of its manuscripts are intrinsically valuable and rare, but the present policy is not to buy manuscripts so much as to acquire printed works for academic purposes. Manuscripts described in this list are arranged alphabetically by lan guage. Within each language items are arranged alphabetically by author or by title if anonymous. For each item, the entry consists of author, title, brief subject, important features, the type of paper or material on which the manuscript is written, the number of folios or pages, date if any, size in inches and manuscript number. Manuscripts in two langua ges, such as Hindi Panjabi or Sanskrit Prakrit are listed after those in the main language concerned. There is an author, title and language index at the end. There are many Indian dating systems, and sometimes it is difficult to establish the equivale nt Christian date. I have used A. Cunningham's Book of Indian eras with tables for calculating Indian dates 3 (Calcutta, 1833) for this purpose. R C Dogra February 1978 1. Belvalkar (Sripad Krishna).
