The Arts

Professor Buhler's Indische Palaeographie, consisting of 96 pages with 9 plates of alphabetical characters and numerals and 8 tables of explanatory transliteration of them, was originally published in 1896. An English version of this was prepared by Professor Buhler himself; the manuscript was on its way to the press at the time of his death. J.F. Fleet, with great difficulties, recovered the MS. and got it printed in Indian Antiquary. 1904, in the form of an Appendix. But it was the text without the plates and tables. And that had been the only form in which it has so far been available to our students and scholars. It is a matter of great satisfaction that for the first time the complete English version of Buhler's monumental work, along with the Plates and Tables, in its proper book-form is published. Page-references of the German original are indicated in square brackets along with Fleet's valuable Introduction to the text.
