It used to be said that half a loaf was better than no loaf at all, but alas, this certainly isn't true of this dreadful edition of Fleet's work. Misspelt, ungrammatical, and so badly presented as to be virtually unreadable, I soon gave up and threw it in the bin. Fleet was one of those Victorian greats who gave India its history back. He was the first Indian Government Epigraphist, whose knowledge of the early Indian dialects and scripts was immense, and his contribution to Indology was equally great. Now his grave (in Ealing Old Cemetery) lies mournful and neglected, and it appears that his literary output is now to be equally mistreated too (all part, no doubt, of the present colonial guilt which is being so assiduously fostered these days). Tragic indeed.
