About this Item: Dodd, Mead and Company, New York, 1885. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good+. First American Edition. xx, [1] & 236 pages; Publisher's blue cloth, gilt stamped with English title stamped in gilt on the spine, Sanskrit title (in Devanagari letters) stamped in gilt on the front cover. Top edges of the leaves carefully opened, fore and bottom edges trimmed rough. An excellent copy of the trade edition of this handsome edition, printed by the press of Theodore L. De Vinne in New York. Translated by Sir Monier Monier-Williams This is the second major translation into English of this play, considered the masterpiece of the innovator of Sanskrit drama - Kalidasa. Modern transliteration into Roman letters usually calls this play: Abhijñanashakuntala (which literally translated means "pertaining to token-recognized-S'akuntala-"). Kalidasa's text is a dramatic rendering of the story of Shakuntala told in the epic Mahabharata. The first translation of the play was an English version made by Sir William Jones in 1789. This translation was made by Monier Williams [1819-1899], who was born in Bombay, was educated at King's College School, Balliol College, Oxford (1838-40), the East India Company College (1840-41) and University College, Oxford (1841-44). At the time he first published this translation, in 1855, Monier Williams taught Asian languages at the East India Company College. After the rebellion of 1857 ended the East India Company's rule, he returned to England, where he successfully stood against Max Müller in the 1860 election campaign for the Boden Chair of Sanskrit at Oxford University. By the time this handsome American edition of his 'Sakoontala' was published, Monier Williams had a long list of accompishments. He had created a Sanskrit-English dictionary that is still in print, had been Knighted (1876), had founded the Oxford University's Indian Institute (1883), and had acquired a list of academic honors too long for this note. Shortly afterwards, he was made a Knight Commander of the Indian Empire (1887) and confused librarians and cataloguers for alll time by adding his given name to his surname. This splendid edition from the noted De Vinne press has color-lithographic vignettes at the head of the Introduction, the Notes and each of the six acts of this version of Kalidasa's play. (There were 110 copies on special paper with each page set within a decorative border). The only mark in this excellent copy is a brief former owner's pencil signature (in Sanskrit/Devanagari letters) on the front free endpaper. The binding is clean and tight, and shows only the faintest evidence of light rubbing at the corners, spine ends, and two tiny points along the front hinge. OCLC Number: 2754219.

About this Item: Stephen Austin, Hertford, 1855. Full Leather. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. A fine exhibition binding by Zaehnsdorf (with their exhibition stamp to the rear endpaper) with excellent provenance - see below; pp. xxviii, 227, [1], 24, [2]. Highly decorated with colour and gilt printing throughout, 16 colour-printed plates. Crushed brown morocco, with the boards tooled in gilt with an Indian influence, four large corner pieces with a central oval boss, the spine decorated in gilt and with five wide raised bands; double fillet edge-rolls; wide turn-in extravagently decorated in a repeating floral pattern; orange silk doublures with "Bound by Zaensdorf"stamped to the front. All edges gilt. Binding very good with slight rubbing to extremities; contents good and tight, some pages with a little foxing but mostly light, a few pages more pronounced. A fine book in a fine binding. PROVENANCE: With the bookplate of Cynthia Graham (née Duncombe) with the signature of the same dated Christmas 1889 to the front blank. Cynthia Duncombe was one of the daughters of the 1st Earl of Feversham and wife to Sir Richard James Graham, 4th Bt. She was sister to Helen Venetia [Duncombe] Vincent better known as Helen Viscountess D'Aberon, who was described as the most beautiful woman in England - as captured in John Singer Sargent's famous portrait. The Duncombe sisters inhabited a world of grace and elegance and, above all, wealth, and were able to enjoy the finest "trinkets" that the then world could offer. This book was evidently a Christmas present. BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: "The pictorial borders to the illustrations, as well as that round each page, and the other ornaments and decorations, are taken from MSS in the British Museum and the Library of the East India House. They have been designed by Mr T Sulman Jun, and engraved by Mr George Measom." Stephen Austin of Hertford was printer to the East India College, established by the East India Company in 1805 outside Hertford. He began to print and publish oriental books using wood-engraving rather than chromolithography for his lavish decorations, sometimes with four or five colours. This is his most successful work. Size: Small 4to. Seller Inventory # 025709
