As my note says, the JayamaNgalaa was first published in vol.26 of the Journal in parts during the years 1956 and 1957. Maybe the book is still available in some shops where antique books are available.

Thank you very much for this information. Our library has only volume 27 (1957) and on, but not the earlier ones. Do you know in what volume the earlier sections were published, and  if copies of the edition is available anywhere for sale? Thanks.Patrick Olivelle

The commentary was first published in instalments in the Journal of the Oriental reseach Institute, and later it was issued in the book form. The first part of the commentary was originally punlished likewise in the same volume of the Journal.

> Dear All:
> Two question to the śāstripariṣad regarding the commentary on the Arthaśāstra by Śaṅkarārya called "Jayamaṅgalā" and Bhikṣu Prabhāmati's called "Cāṇakyaṭīkā":
> 1) This was published in Sarasvatibhavana Granthamala, Sampurnanand Sanskrit University, Varanasi with three other commentaries. I have two parts of volume one, and two parts of volume two. However, the second part of volume one ends at the 12th chapter of the first book of the AS. The first part of the second volume begins with the first chapter of the second book. Theoretically, therefore, there should be a third part of the first volume. I have not been able to locate it anywhere. Do you all know whether that part containing chapter 13-21 of the first book was ever published?
> 2) Kangle (vol. 2, p. 16) says that this commentary was published by G. Harihara Sastri in the Journal of Oriental Research. I found the last part (2nd book of AS) in volumes 26 (1956-57). Do you know what year the first part(s) was published?
