about

Excerpt from Journal of the Pali Text Society, 1896

The whole collection of mss. That belonged to the King's Library at Mandalay seems to have consisted of about numbers (the highest number I have met with is and a few mss. Are unnumbered), but of these more than 800 are now missing, having either been looted during the war, or lent out at the time when the Library was removed to the India Office.

The collection consists of three sorts of mss.: some are purely Pali mss., some purely Burmese, and some mixed Pali and Burmese, viz., commentaries on Pali books.
