PREFACEThe present volume, originally intended to be published as
Studies in Dharmasastra,
vol, ii (Mediaeval Period), is now being presented to the public as
Studies in Nibandhas.*
It is a sequel to
Studies in Dharmasastra
(vol. i Ancient Period), published in 1964 andas such the number of the Appendices (D to I) in the body of the present work isinadvertently in continuation of those of the previous work, but is A to F in the Appen-adices themselves. Like the previous work it is also a collection of the present writer'soriginally published papers of the last three decades, except the portions relating toGovindänanda's fifth digest, the
and his place of residence and socialpedigree and the major portion of the detailed description of his
Varsakriya kaumudi,
which are being published here for the first time. It covers the whole of Eastern andNorthern India, including Bengal, Mithila and Uttarapradeáa and describes in detail someof the
composed in these areas between the twelfth and sixteenth centuries ofthe Christian era. But its treatment of the work of Raghunandana, the great Bengalidigest-writer of the 16th century, is rather short, describing as it does only the contentsof his neglected small work, the
embodied in section vi and con-cerning itself with 'consecration of temples in the 16th century'. This was publishedearlier in the
Bharatiya Vidyä
vol. xiii, Bombay, 1952, only a year later than the subject-matter of section vii, dealing with "A few remarks on S.C. Banerji's 'Smrtinibandha Liter-ature and Bengal's contribution
." Though the originally published ABORI (Poona) paper,which contained the present section vii, listed the already published papers by the presentwriter on Raghunandana, yet the list was naturally wanting in the mention of the nameof the later
Bharatiya Vidyä
paper. Section vii, though augmented here with the mentionof the present writer's monograph viz.
s indebtedness to his predecessors,
published in 19SS from the Asiatic Society, Calcutta, inadvertently repeats the previousomission of the rference to the
Bharatiya Vidyä
paper, which reference is made herealso by way of supplementing the information of this paper, as given in note 141 on
91 of the present work. The publication of the present writer's above-mentionedmonograph on Raghunandana is the primary reason of his exclusion from the presentvolume of details of Raghunandana's other works. The present treatise, however,delineates
in extenso
the chronology and contents of the works of some of Raghu-nandana's more important predecessors, the works of whom were immensely laid by himunder contribution for the production of his encyclopaedic
divided into 28parts.As in the previous volume, so in the present one the author wishes to acknowledgehis indebtedness to his veteran friend and inspirer, MM. Dr. P.V. Kane, Bhärata-ratna,National Professor of Indology and to his friend and colleague,
DebiprasadChattopadhyaya, the editor of the
