RAS Ellis Persian 29 (Library, Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland)
1 copy of Singhasan Battisi by Ganam? Chand b. Gokaldas ... Brahman (translator).
The text breaks off abrubtly in the middle of a page. Bound in after the front flyleaves is a note describing the book, probably in Ellis's hand. Translation from the Prakrit of the popular collection of stories concerning Rajah Bikramajit of Malwa. Not from the Panchatantra as stated by the translator on p. 3. This version differs from all those noted by Rieu and Ethe. Begins with some account of the author. Ff54-64, in a different hand and on different paper, contain a translation of the story of the cunning weasel from the Arabian nights.
