A 405-page reader with 106 pages of Devanagari text from Vedic, epic, didactic and story literature, and from works on ritual and law.

Although flawed by its orientalist lack of both sympathy for, and intimate knowledge of, the culture which gave rise to these texts, it is currently the only Sanskrit reader of its caliber. Its advantages lie in the diversity of the readings, clear printing, breaking of sandhi for the initial reading selection, readings which are extremely well supported by a glossary (with Indo-European cognates) and introductory notes, and references to relevant paragraphs in Whitney’s Sanskrit Grammar.
