Description
From the Jacket

The so-called "Smaller Petrograd Dictionary’- the German title is “Sanskrit—Worterbuch in Kuerzerer Fassung"-was started by O.V. Bohtlingk only a few years after the completion, in 1875, of the 7—volumed “Larger P.D." (which he had worked on in cooperation with R.V. Roth). As stated by B himself in the preface of 1879, the ‘shorter version’ was not meant to replace the earlier one, but "to improve where something ought to be improved and to add where something was missing, and to always remind the reader, by leaving out all the quotations and references, that the larger dictionary had to remain the main source". Indeed, who- ever wants to know more about a word, i.e. the background and basis of the meanings given for - it, still has to turn to the larger P.D. On the other hand, it is equally evident that B has fully achieved his aim: The "Smaller P.D." is so considerably an improvement both in terms of substance as also of quantity that it has become the tool of all those who wish to read Sanskrit texts; in fact most of the later Sanskrit dictionaries are heavily indebted to B’s work, directly or indirectly; e. g. Monier—Williams’ is little more than a translated abridgement. It is a long felt need of Indian Studies that the shorter version, a signal achievement in lexicography, is also made available again to present-day scholars, and in a reprint which is both good and to be had at a reasonable price.

Otto Von Bohtlinkk (1815-1904) was born at St. Petersburg, the capital of Tsarist Russia. After his early education there, he left for Germany to study Sanskrit with August Wilhelm von Schlegel and Christian Lassen at Bonn and with Franz Bopp at Berlin, all three pioneers in Indology. This association with a poet and a I philologist as teachers reflects in B6htlingk’s first two publications: an edition of Kalidasa’s Sakuntala (Bonn 1842) and the first printed edition of Panini’s Astadhyayi (Bonn 1839-40). After his return to St. Petersburg in 1843, he was appointed member of the Imperial Academy of Sciences, and this appointment allowed him to devote full time to Sanskrit studies. He published several Sanskrit texts.

His greatest work undoubtedly is the monumental dictionary of Sanskrit which he compiled in association with Rudolph Roth and with the collaboration of several leading Indologists. When the last and seventh volume came out after a quarter century of hard labour (1852- 75), he began at once an abridged version, but with much additional vocabulary, which was also published in seven volumes from 1879 to 1889. These two dictionaries, sponsored by the Imperial Academy of Sciences at St. Peters- burg, are lasting testimonies to Bohtlingk’s clarity of vision, untiring energy and academic leadership.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times.
