About this Item

25x16cm, (326) pp, Series: Rajasthan Oriental Research Institute Publication Nr. 11. [A reprint of the 1953 edition] Consists of a 33-page English introduction, 10pp facsimile text plates + the 275-page text, in Devanagari characters. [" The 'Kanhadabe Prabandha' is perhaps the most valuable treasure in Old Gujarati or Old Western Rajasthani.it is a text of supreme importance for a study of the development of the Gujarati language. Composed as early as v.s. 1512,.it embodies a stage when Gujarati and Rajasthani were just beginning to evolve their distinctive characteristics from the common source- the post- Apabrahmsa. While the morphology & the general character of the language is unmistakeably Gujarati, its phonology reveals several Rajasthani traits.It is perhaps the only OWR 'Prabandha' that gives an accurate account of historical events. There is hardly any doubt that the poet has drawn at first-hand on court-records and chronicles as well as the current historical traditions of Rajasthan.Moreover the work is a mine of information on the social customs and manners of the period.[and] can claim a high place of honour as a work of art. It is an epic poem, grand in its design, vigorous in the portrayal of its characters, and masterly in its treatment of the sentiments." - from the introduction] Some rubbing. Corner bumps.
