Harvard Oriental Series is pleased to announce some new volumes:

HOS 98, François Voegeli, Vadhula Srautasutra ch. V

The Fifth Prapāṭhaka of the Vādhūla Śrautasūtra: Introduction to the Edition, Translation, and Commentary<https://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674275560>
Voegeli, François
The Fifth Prapāṭhaka of the Vādhūla Śrautasūtra includes a critical edition, followed by a translation and a commentary, of the fifth chapter (prapāṭhaka) of the Vādhūla śrautasūtra. This chapter is dedicated to the description of the so-called “independent” animal sacrifice (nirūḍhapaśubandha) in Vedic ritual.

HOS 54, The long delayed 2nd part of V. Raghavan, Srangaraprakasa, that we could print after receiving additional materials from the Raghavan family.
Śṛṅgāraprakāśa of Bhoja, Part <https://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674833401> 2
Raghavan, Venkatarama
This edition is based on new manuscripts of this important treatise on classical Sanskrit poetics by the famous eleventh-century King Bhoja of Malwa. The text is important because of the theoretical treatment of the erotic sentiment (srngara) in classical Sanskrit texts, and also as a mine of quotations from Sanskrit and Prakrit poetical texts.
Also recently published:

HOS 90:
Lokaprakāśa by Kṣemendra with the commentary of Sahaja Bhaṭṭa, Volume 2: Additional Manuscripts and Early Studies<https://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674984363>
ed. Witzel, Michael
Long lost, the manuscript of this significant text has been recovered in the Société Asiatique in Paris and is now published here. Lokaprakāśa by Kṣemendra with the Commentary of Sahaja Bhaṭṭa fills a large gap in our knowledge of private life and public administration in medieval India.

HOS 96:
Utpaladeva on the Power of Action: A First Edition, Annotated Translation and Study of Īśvarapratyabhijñāvivṛti, Chapter 2.1<https://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674270817>
Ratié, Isabelle
Utpaladeva on the Power of Action provides the first critical edition, annotated translation, and study of one of the chapters of the Recognition of the Lord, a landmark in the history of nondual Śaivism by Utpaladeva, that were recently recovered from marginal annotations in manuscripts of other commentaries on Utpaladeva’s treatise.
HOS 97
An Indian Theory of Defeasible Reasoning: The Doctrine of upādhi in the Upādhidarpaṇa<https://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674273412>
Guhe, Eberhard
The pre-Gaṅgeśa Navya-Nyāya treatise Upādhidarpaṇa (UD) deals with the upādhi, a key concept in the Navya-Nyāya theory of inference. This volume is the first published edition and translation of the only manuscript of the UD. Notes have been added to elucidate the historical context of the authors, works, and philosophical doctrines in the UD.
Vol. 100 is to be released soon:  The coronation manual of King Birendra of Nepal (1975)

All the best,
Michael Witzel
