London: Trubner & Co., 1878. Second edition "enlarged and improved," 4to, pp. xii, 147 plus 34 plates bound in at the rear (a number folding); colored frontispiece map; a near fine copy in orig. brown cloth gilt. Burnell (1840-1882) was "a very eminent Sanskrit scholar and high authority on the language and literature of southern India... [He] did for south Indian writing what Princep had attempted four years before for the palaeography of the north, and his Elements of South Indian Palaeography is a standard work, and deservedly won for him the honorary doctor's degree of the University of Strasburg" (see DNB III, 384). Max Muller has said that this work "opens an avenue through one of the thickest and darkest jungles of Indian archaeology, and is so full of documentary evidence that it will long remain indispensable to every student of Indian literature."
