A Pali Dictionary

Scope and Content

This "A Pali Dictionary" is of Pali words/phrases with their English meanings. The handwritten dictionary is written on the left-hand page with occasional additional notes on the right-hand page. It is contained within a red marbled hardbound notebook, 20.5 x 16 cm, of which the front board is detached. On its inner cover has been attached a letter from Donald Ferguson, who it seems donated this dictionary to the Royal Asiatic Society. He bought the volume at a sale of books of Reverend David de Silva, Wesleyan minister, on 29 June 1878. Ferguson surmises that this is the third of four volumes originally written by Gogerly.

Acquisition Information

Donated by Donald Ferguson sometime after June 1878.
