Palm leaf; 6 lines on a folio; palm leaflet covers. Inscription “Whish” on label pasted on cover, but this has then been crossed out. South Indian Sanskrit / Whish Manuscript Collection. This manuscript is labelled as 216, but in ’A catalogue of South Indian Sanskrit manuscripts (especially those of the Whish Collection) belonging to the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland’ by M. Winternitz, with an appendix by F. W. Thomas (London: RAS, 1902), the Whish MS numbers only go up to 195, and then other South Indian Sanskrit manuscripts are numbered from 196 to 215.
