"The results of comparative philology are now so generally incorporated into our modern classical grammars, lexicons, and text-books, that even a slight knowledge of Sanskrit...is of great service to the classical teacher in making his instruction interesting and effective. As independent disciplines, Sanskrit and comparative philology, and the literatures and religions of India, are constantly gaining in importance, so that, for example, Sanskrit is now taught at all but one of the twenty universities of the German Empire." Sections: From the Maha-bharata; From the Hitopadeca; From the Katha-sarit-sagara; From the Manava-dharmacastra; From the Rigveda; From the Maitrayani; Other Brahmana-pieces; and From the Grihya-sutras. 405 pp. Blue cloth mildly rubbed/scuffed. Gilt lettering on spine. Spine darkened. Spine ends and covers' corners rubbed. Overall covers are Good to Good+. Guerard Piffard's name written on front endpaper. Interior is tight, clean and Very Good+. Charles Rockwell Lanman (July 8, 1850-February 20, 1941) was an American scholar of the Sanskrit language. He was professor of Sanskrit at Johns Hopkins University from 1876 to 1880 and subsequently at Harvard University. In 1889 he travelled in India and bought for Harvard University Sanskrit and Prakrit books and manuscripts, which, with those subsequently bequeathed to the university by Fitzedward Hall, make the most valuable collection of its kind in America".
