[South Indian Sanskrit MS 200, Sanskrit MS 16] Kadambapurīmāhātmya
Language – Sanskrit
Date – [1800?]
Palm leaf; 6 lines on a folio. Manuscript consists of the Kadambapurīmāhātmya of the Brahmanāradasaṃvāda of the Pūrvakhaṇḍa of the Brahmāṇḍa-Purāṇa. F. W. Thomas, in the Winternitz catalogue entry, notes that it is the same work as RAS South Indian Sanskrit MS 199 / Sanskrit MS 15, from which it is copied, which is proved by its displaying the same numerous small gaps, and in one or two small points (e.g. 6a, 1.4 = 3a, 1.2, 9a, 1.6 = 4a, 1.8) making corrections. In this MS. the chapters end on f.3a, 5b, 9b, 13b, 16b, 22a. On the outside of the first folio is a statement of the contents in Tamil, and on the outside of the last folio is written in a European hand ‘D Kadambapuri Mâhâtmya’.
