Bibliography description
First notice with lithograph, translation (by A. Troyer) and transcript (by Pt. Madhav Rao) in #Burt_1834 (#Bhandarkar_1929:212 says this text and translation was commenced by a brother of Lieutenant T. S. Burt, finished by a Munshi, revised by Burt and ultimately reduced by Prinsep). Improved transcript in #Mill_1834a, rudimentary genealogy in #Mill_1834b. New lithograph (by Edward Smith) and improved transcript and translation in #Prinsep_1837c (translation republished in #Prinsep_1858:233). Further improvement in a paper presented to the Royal Asiatic Society of Bombay in 1970 by Bhau Daji (never published; mentioned in #BhauDaji_1873); also #BhauDaji_1872. Re-edited with more improvements in #Fleet_1888. Revised yet again in #Bühler_1890:88-91 and discussed ibid:31-45. Further discussion: #Sharma_1956.
