Abstract

Regarding the constitution of the text, it seems unlikely that the manuscript M that Freschi collated for this edition is different from the manuscript on which the editio princeps (1923) was based, which was also a palm-leaf manuscript in Telugu script at the Government Oriental Library in Mysore. Freschi’s stemma requires us to assume that the GOL lost (!) the hypothetical exemplar of the editio princeps. Further, the differences between the editio princeps and M all seem to be either emendations or mistakes on the part of the editor (including the omission of a line on p. 310, where the editor’s eye appears to have jumped from niyojyo to niyojyah in the following line). This book is a welcome contribution. It is, vacuously, the most significant work on Rāmānujācārya since Ramaswami Shastri’s edition of the Tantrarahasya in 1953. Although less comprehensive, it does for Prābhākara Mīmāmsā what Edgerton’s version of the Mīmāmsānyāyaprakāśa and Benson’s recent (2010) version of the Mīmāmsānyāyasamgraha have done for Bhātta Mīmāmsā, namely to make these . . .. . valuable overviews of their respective systems available to a wider audience.
