> John Crawfurd, An Inscription from the Kawi or Ancient Javanese Language,
> Verhandelingen van het Bataviaasch Genootschap der Kunsten en Wetenschappen
> 8, 1816, Batavia: Government Press.
> The volume of the *Verhandelingen* in question can be found on archive.org.
> The title is misleading, and the decipherment utterly unreliable, but the
> transcription clearly reflects the Sanskrit-text of the 'Calcutta Stone' (
> https://iias.asia/the-newsletter/article/kolkata-calcutta-stone-bicentennial-british-interregnum-java-1811-1816).
> It occurred to me recently that this publication might mark the beginning
> of Sanskrit epigraphy as a modern scholarly enterprise. But perhaps there
> is competition from publications by British officers who were posted in
> India proper rather than in 'Farther India'. Please enlighten me.
> Best wishes,
