I have added the two new HP Shastri "Search" scans to the MS Catalogue digital archive, at

under Biswas 0375.  Now, thanks to Reinhold and Gretil, all three reports are available.

Many thanks to Reinhold for taking the trouble to make the scan. A number of list members have asked me to share the file once I received it. I believe the link shared by Reinhold should suffice.

Best regards,

Betreff: [INDOLOGY] Shastri's 1901 Report on the Search for Sanskrit Manuscripts (1895-1900)

Dear colleagues,

Would anybody have a pdf scan of the following work? I could only find the 1905 Report. The 1901 Report is not available anywhere here in Japan and I have searched through archive.org,hathitrust.org and Wujastik's mss catalogue site but to no avail.

Shastri, Haraprasad. Report on the Search for Sanskrit Manuscripts (1895-1900). Calcutta: Asiatic soc. of Bengal, 1901.

The work appears to have only 25pp. So it should be light enough to send through private email. 

Many thanks in advance and best wishes for the festive season,
