Side by side with editing and translating the major texts, early Indologists thought of bringing to light the short poems, plays, lyrics of love and devotion etc., the laghu kavyas which were in abundance in Sanskrit literature, through collections of these published periodically. The earliest effort in this line seems to be "The Neeti Sunkhulun" a collection of minor Nīti works, in Bengali script (Serampore Press, 1831). The next is the well-known Kavya- saṁgraha, a Sanskrit anthology being a collection of best smaller poems in Sanskrit language" brought out by the missionary Dr John Hæberlin (W. Thacker & Co., Calcutta, 1847). In 1850, Giriscandra Vidyaratna brought out the Śatakāvali (Samkrita Press, Calcutta). In 1869, Dinanatha Nyayaratna re-published Hæberlin's anthologies; and based on the same and with some additions, Jivananda Vidyasagar brought out his Kāvyasaṁgraha in 1872 (2nd edition 1886; 3rd, 1888). Bholanatha Mukhopadhyaya compiled the Kāvyaratnasārasamgraha in 1876 (Kavitāratnākara Press, Calcutta). The above ventures were from Calcutta. In Bombay, the first effort in this direction was the Kāvyakalāpa (Ganpat Krishnaji's Press, 1864). From the Gopal Narayan Co.'s Press, Bombay, appeared in 1887-1891 the series of minor works called the Grantharatnamālā. But the best known of all such serial publications of collections of minor works is the Kāvyamālā Gucchakas of the Nirnaya Sagar Press, Bombay, of which fourteen parts appeared, offering in all 131 works. The Pandit (Kāsi-vidyā-sudhānidhi), Banaras, started in 1866, presented some shorter texts but it concentrated on Śāstraic works and longer treatises. Serial publications of critical editions of larger treatises were started in many centres in India and in fact that was one of the main forms that Sanskrit studies and research took at the turn of the present century and during its early decades. 🔍+ 🔍° 🔍- ⟲ ⟳ Edit summary (optional) Status Needs more work Proofed once Proofed twice Not relevant Only registered users can save changes.
