About This Item

Calcutta: Kaviraj Avinash Chandra Kaviratna. Cloth - Hard Cover. Good-/No Dust Jacket. Circa 1900. 2174 pages bound into three volumes, though with broken up pagination. Volume I contains 30 lessons with pagination [1] vii iv [1]-443. Volume II contains 51 lessons with pagination [445] 446-650, 1-26, 677-1013 [1], [1913] 1914-2174 )Finis). Volume II contains 30 lessons with pagination [1015] 1016-1911. Some pagination may be mis-printed. Appears complete as bound into the three volumes at a later time. Binding is black cloth with burgundy leather spine labels likely salvaged from previous bindings. Scattered penciled notations. Scattered light and small worm holes not affecting text. There are several leaves in the second volume with closed tears, mostly with previous archival tape repairs. Despite faults and damage, all text remains legible. Very scarce translation of Charaka-Samhita with extensive footnotes.

I offer a selection of more than 5000 books of all genre, as well as more than 1000 maps ranging from 15th century to early 20th.
