Brahmi Script (In 2 Volumes)

Ram Sharma (Author)
Synopsis The book Brahmi Script—Development in North-Western India and Central Asia in two volumes attempts to give a vivid picture of the Brahmi alphabet in all its three stages viz., early Brahmi, middle Brahmi and late Brahmi which remained current in North-Western region of India and Central Asia and is presented in three parts. In the first part source material including inscriptions, coins and manuscripts have been critically discussed. The second part represents a smooth flow of the development of the script and numerals. The third part consists of charts and forms of letters which is quite exhaustive. While all the three parts are quite interdependent, they can be studied and referred to independently of each other. It is hoped this scholarly book will be welcomed by researchers in the Brahmi Script.
