About this title


This book fills a gap: India has had plenty of encyclopedias, but no 'encyclopedia of encyclopedias.' The eminent bibliographer, Henry Scholberg, has after all produced it. Bibliophile that he is, in the very classical tradition, he has found out, what we should ourselves have done, that India was producing encyclopedias in Sanskrit seven or eight centuries before Diderot did his Encyclopedie in France or the publication of Britannica in Britain!

About the Author:

HENRY SCHOLBERG, is a native of India, having been born in Darjeeling. Two-thirds of his childhood was spent in India. Before retiring from the University of Minnesota he served for twenty years as curator of the Ames Library of South Asia. He has written books of bibliography, history, poetry and more than one novel.
