Lectures on Manuscriptology
Lectures on Manuscriptology
Description
Preface

Manuscriptology is an important branch of knowledge concerning old manuscripts: the original hand—scripts. materials used for writing, subsequent copying and recopying of the original texts, their collections, preservations cataloguing and finally preparing their critical editions. In the course of their journey MSS suffer many changes like textual corruption, missing. wrecking and displacement of folios, etc., posing great problems to the later editors for preparing their critical editions,. Most of the manuscripts remain unnoticed and finally go to oblivion. Very few of them get the fortune of attaining M0/crit. i.e. publication in critically edited form. It was really an order of the Providence that l developed a keen interest for preparing critical editions of some Vedic texts which were yet unknown. I devoted a considerable period of my academic life in this field. More l devoted time in critical text—editing work, more I became acquainted with manuscriptology in general and the problems encountering in the work of critical text—editing in particular.

Knowing that was engaged in critical edition Vedic texts, l was invited by several institutions to deliver lectures on Manuscriptology in general and problems concerning preparation of critical editions of Vedic texts in particular. New l feel a great pleasure in presenting my those lectures/papers, which l had delivered/presented in Seminars conferences, in a revised form in this book for the benefit of the students of Manuscriptology.

I am grateful to the authorities of the Asiatic Society, Calcutta (March 8-10, 1990), the Centre of Advanced Study in Sanskrit. University of Poona (Jan. 21-23, 1992) and the institute of Asian Studies, madras (Jan 1l-l3, 1995). Who had invited me to deliver those lectures in the Seminars, orgnised by them. I place on record a word of appreciation for `Yogesh, my youngest son. for his nice type—setting of _ the book. l express my thanks to Dr. Raghbir Singh, Reader in the Deptt. of VVBIS & IS, (P.U.) Hoshiaipur for taking pain in correcting the proofs.

All always packed with care, delivered in a timely, no hassle fashion. Your business is very trustworthy and I am so glad to have when I need to look for something.
Prashanti, USA
Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.

I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
