The present work forms the tenth volume of an ambitious project of publishing all the important ancient Indian epigraphical records in twenty volumes, each containing carefully deciphered and critically edited text, with useful notes and full illustrations. The author has spared no pains in preparing this volume of great historical and epigraphical value. In each case, the preserved Sanskrit text of the inscription has been carefully examined and given as incorporating the emendations and suggestions by various earlier scholars. Bringing the work quite up-to-date and also including about half a dozen records not published or popularized earlier, the author has given highly valuable and enlightening suggestions, improving the readings as well as meanings, and has even solved some old outstanding problems. He has brought out a very reliable text and in all cases of disputed readings and interpretations his viewpoint is indeed thorough and justified.
The plates accompanying the volume include almost each and every inscription and they are very useful, being excellently reproduced.
