Notebook 4 ('v')

Scope and Content

The manuscript consists of different handwritten verses from the 235-275th jātakas of the Theravāda Jātaka canon (around 547 jātakas in total). Handwritten by Gogerly in the Sinhalese script, before November 6, 1847 in Sri Lanka (Ceylon). The text is aligned in columns, possibly leaving space for English translation on the right page side. The notebook consists of 19 loose sheets (21 pages of text) and is incomplete, as the last sheet is missing. Moreover, most of the pages are damaged and therefore some of the verses cannot be fully seen. Slightly fragile. 24.3cmX18.6cm.
