TRÜBNER & CO., 57 AND 59, LUDGATE HILL.
The following Catalogues may be had on Application :
A CATALOGUE OF SANSKRIT LITERATURE.
A CATALOGUE OF LEADING BOOKS ON EGYPT AND EGYPTOLOGY, AND ON ASSYRIA AND ASSYRIOLOGY.
A CATALOGUE OF BOOKS ON THE HISTORY, LANGUAGES, RELIGIONS, ANTIQUITIES, LITERATURE AND GEOGRAPHY OF THE SEMITIC, IRANIAN, AND TATAR RACES.
A CATALOGUE OF TRÜBNER'S ORIENTAL AND LINGUISTIC PUBLICATIONS.
A CATALOGUE OF LEADING BOOKS ON PALI, PRAKRIT, AND BUDDHISTIC LITERATURE, TO WHICH IS ADDED A LIST OF BOOKS ON CEYLON.
OUR object in compiling this Catalogue has been to present to Students and to Booksellers a book of ready reference to the titles of those approved Grammars and Dictionaries that can be obtained without difficulty. And we hope that, within this limit, the work will, on trial, be found to answer its purpose.
Scholars requiring a more complete account of the grammatical and lexicographical apparatus of one or the other of the different Languages, than the plan adopted by us would have permitted, are respectfully invited to communicate with us, when we will gladly endeavour to meet their wishes in this respect to the extent of our knowledge and of our opportunities.
All the works enumerated can be supplied by us at the affixed prices.

PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.
THE success of the "Catalogue of Dictionaries and Grammars " published by us in 1872, of which a large edition was exhausted in a comparatively short time, and for which the demand still continues, has encouraged us to compile the considerably augmented edition now presented to Scholars, Linguistic Students and Booksellers.
In the notice preceding the original list we stated our object to have been to provide Students and Booksellers with a book of ready reference to the titles of those approved Grammars and Dictionaries that could be obtained without difficulty. This principle has been adhered to in the preparation of the new edition, and we have no hesitation in declaring that within the limit as above stated no person or persons will consult it without finding, more or less, the information he or they may stand in need of. Our catalogue may now justly claim the title of a "Bibliography"; not an "ideal" but a practical" one, inasmuch as it enumerates the best literature on the subject, still accessible, which moreover can with few if any exceptions be supplied either out of our own large accumulations of stock, or be procured by us to order if a reasonable time be allowed.
The original catalogue contained about 1100 titles on 64 pages, whilst this second edition enumerates nearly 3000 titles on 170 pages. The additions to this new edition are mainly due to the painstaking care of Mr. Hiersemann, with whom its preparation has in a great measure been a labour of love.
