Nalanda and its Epigraphic Material
Nalanda and its Epigraphic Material
Description
Preface

Of all Buddhist sites excavated by the Archaeological Survey, Nalanda has proved the most prolific as regards inscriptions. Although the results of excavation are noticed year by year in the Annual Reports, it was unfortunate that no complete account was prepared before Mr. Page the officer responsible for the bulk of the excavation retired from the Survey in 1932. to remedy this defect, so far as the numerous seals, copper plates and stone inscriptions are concerned, the work was happily entrusted to the then Government Epigraphist, Dr. Hirananda Sastri who brought to bear on this task his ripe scholarship and his intimate knowledge of Nalanda. Dr. Sastri, however, retired in 1933 before he could give finishing touches to his work and this task fell on his successor Dr. Chakravarti, who had necessarily to verify all the readings from the original material at Nalanda, in course of which considerable difference of readings were brought out. Minor emendations have made in Dr. Sastri's text, but wherever it was felt necessary the points of difference are indicated in footnote by Dr. Chakravarti as Editor.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
