Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> A 19th century paper manuscript of the famous Śaiva hymn called <i>Mahimnastotra</i>, by Puṣpadanta. The manuscript consists of two loose quires, the first one with five bifolia and the second one with one bifolium. Maybe these quires were meant to be bound with quires containing other similar works, thus forming a multi-text manuscript that belongs to a specific typology, of collections of devotional works in codex format with illuminations and an ornate layout, probably common in 19th-century North India (see also <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href=''>Or.1817</a> and <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href=''>Or.1818</a> and also DD.7.2, an illuminated multi-text devotional manuscript of vaiṣṇava affiliation kept at the Christ's College, Cambridge, and containing the <i>Bhagavadgītā</i>, the <i>Viṣṇusahasranāma</i>, the <i>Bhīṣmastava</i>, the <i>Anusmṛta</i>, the <i>Gajendramokṣaṇa</i> and the <i> Rāmacandrastavarāja</i>.) </p>
