<p style='text-align: justify;'>This is a manuscript of the Sanskrit anonymous version of the <i>Kālakācāryakathā</i> known as the <i>Śrīvīravākyānumataṃ</i> version, in 65 verses (see W. Norman Brown 1933: 98-101). It is valuable because of its seven finely executed miniature paintings in bright colours. Some of them are accompanied by a short caption in Gujarati. The foliation from 145 to 156 indicates that this was part of a manuscript in which the first text was almost certainly the <i>Kalpasūtra</i>. Like many manuscripts of these two texts, this one makes use of a quasi-calligraphic script. This Cambridge manuscript has a note by a second hand indicating that it changed hands and was sold for five rupees in V.S. 1835 = 1778. W. Norman Brown (1933: 98), who used it for his edition of this version of the story (98-102), writes: 'not dated, but from appearance might have been made about the beginning of the sixteenth century'.</p>
