About this Item

A heavily footnoted study of a Sanskrit manuscript then in the library of the Holy Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith (S.C.P.F.) and now in the Vatican Library. The study nicely exhibits why the press of the S.C.P.F. was held in high regard for its publications in "exotic" languages: This scholarly study employs => roman, italic, Sanskrit, and Hindustani fonts. The author, an Austrian Carmelite missionary and scholar whose secular name was Johann Philipp Wesdin, is credited with authorship of the first Sanskrit grammar printed in Europe. Provenance: Ex?Theological Institute of Connecticut, properly deaccessioned. Large 4to (26.5 cm; 10.5"). 80 pp. Contemporary wrappers, with pencilling, spine perished and repaired with archival paper tape. Ex-library: two paper shelf labels on front cover, seven leaves with library's blind pressure-stamps. Light age-toning. => A nice example of this press's typography in an interesting, characteristic text. Bookseller Inventory # 36690
