Contents: Foreword. Introduction. A list of Kharosthi Inscriptions.

From the foreword: "This work represents an annotated list of Kharosthi inscriptions of subcontinental India which was prepared by Nanigopal Majumdar, a celebrated archaeologist and paleographer, who was killed by some notorious robbers. Majumdar's exhaustive list, prepared with exemplary effort, was published in 1924 in the Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal (now Journal of the Asiatic Society, Kolkata). This list was used by S. Konow. The value of the reprint consists of a very informative introduction of Professor Bratindranath Mukherjee, a leading expert on Kharosthi, who traces its evolution and characteristic features in a highly interesting manner."
