Though the First Edition of the Sanskrit Dictionary was published at Calcutta long long ago, no work has yet appeared to supersede the preface with which it was accompanied. Many contributions towards a History of Sanskrit lecography have indeed, since incidentally been made by Lassen, Roth, Goldstucker, Weber, Hall, Westergaard, Bohtlingk and others; but they are scattered over various works and periodicals, so that a treatise on this branch of Indian Literature, which should reflect the present state of Sanskrit scholarship, still remains a desideratum. The Author himself, who was more competent than any other to accomplish such a task, seems to have deferred it from time to time; for not only did he let the Second Edition (Calcutta : 1832) appear without the Preface, but even long subsequently, when he was asked to allow it to be reprinted for the Journal of the Royal Asiatic society, he declined to give his permission. That, however, he had an intention of re-writing it, in the next Article Grammars and Lexicons of the Sanskrit language. Now both the articles have been published together which will be welcomed by all students of Sanskrit literature who have not the rare first edition of the Dictionary within easy reach.Printed Pages: 156.
