Ezourvedam : a French Veda of the eighteenth century by Ludo Rocher( )

15 editions published in 1984 in 3 languages and held by 1,861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ezourvedam, used by Voltaire among others, as sourcebook for the most ancient of religions, was thereupon found to have been a fraud. Actually it was composed by a Christian - the text shows him to have been a French Jesuit missionary, who did not necessarily know Sanskrit - in order to convert Hindus to Christianity. The controversy surrounding the spurious Veda continues, involving a number of scholars and missionaries particularly in the question of whether or not the Veda was composed in Sanskrit or French. In tracing the history of the Ezourvedam Ludo Rocher adds a number of points, o
Dissertation on the Sanskrit Language by Paulinus( )

5 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 1,469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paulinus a S. Bartholomaeo's Dissertatio historico-critica in linguam Samscrdamicam (1790) serves as an introduction to his Sidharubam, the first Sanskrit grammar published in Europe. The Dissertatio is also important for another reason: it is concerned with speculations about the nature and origin of Sanskrit and the other Indian Languages. It raises questions about their relation to each other and to languages outside India. It bears witness to the fact that Paulinus was on of those few who heralded the era of comparative philology long before its official consecration. In addition, it offer

Jīmūtavāhana's dayabhaga : the Hindu law of inheritance in Bengal by Jīmūtavāhana( )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a translation of a 12th-century Sanskrit legal text, with the original text. The Dayabhaga was one of the most important texts in the history of Indian law. The text, fairly late and inspiring little attention, is important because the British elevated it to such prominence in their new colony in the early 19th century. It was known as the authority on inheritance and significant aspects of family law for the eastern Indian region. The case law and scholarship that surround this text have shaped Indian personal law right up to the present day. -- Amazon.com
The making of western Indology : Henry Thomas Colebrooke and the East India Company by Rosane Rocher( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For thirty years in India at the cusp of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Henry Thomas Colebrooke was an administrator and scholar with the East India Company. This book explains and evaluates Colebrooke's position as the founder of modern Indology. The book discusses how Colebrooke embodies the significant passage from the speculative yearnings attendant on eighteenth century colonial expansion, to the professional, transnational ethos of nineteenth century intellectual life and scholarly enquiry. It covers his early career at the East India Company, and his role in the supreme council and as theorist of the Bengal government. The book highlights how his unprecedented familiarity with a broad range of literature established him as a leading scholar of Sanskrit and president of the Asiatic Society in Calcutta. Colebrooke went on to found the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland, and has set the standards for the study of western Indology. Written by renowned academics in the field of Indology, and drawing on new sources, this biography is a useful contribution to the reassessment of Oriental studies that is currently taking place"--
