- Mbh with Kaiyyaṭa and Nāgeśa. 2 vols.

The first 20 ff. of this ms. (pp. 2-41) are from a different ms. than the remainder. Ends: iti ata parāṇivo yathānyāsam iti kaścātra ... ukāraśca na tau staḥ yad iha tau syātāṃ//2. Title page:

It's a lovely Jaina ms, magnificently written.

Vol.3, p.2218 has post-colophon:
kāṣyāṃ gṛhītaṃ makarasthe gurau saṃvat// iti mahābhāṣye aṣṭamo dhyāyaḥ// ṣrī rāhakaṣṇāya namostu// rāmamahābhāṣyasya pustakam idam āhnika 7
Nāgojibhaṭṭa's Bhāṣyapradīpoddyota on Kaiyyaṭa's Bhāshyapradīpa. Reproduced by photo-lithography under supervision of Professor T. H. Goldstücker from a manuscript dated samvat, 1871. In two volumes. London: India Museum 1874. (Camb. UL. S833.a.87.6)
This is a ms. of saṃ 1811, sāke 1676 [AD 1754] vakratuṇḍasamīpe, manikarṇikāghāt, kāśī, copied by Udaigaja kāyastha.Therefore, it looks as if G. may have misread 1811 as 1871. Or perhaps the printers who prepared the t.p. (after G. had died) made the mistake.
