Please Note: There are three ISBNs for this 2-volume set: One for volume 1, one for Volume 2, and 1 for the combined set.

The Indo-Aryan language of Sanskrit is the primary language of Hinduism and
also a scholarly language of Buddhism. Dating back to the second millennium
BCE, it is considered to be the parent of most modern languages of India, and
remains central to work in Indo-European studies, philology and linguistics
today. First published in 1806, this is a comprehensive grammar of Sanskrit,
compiled by the Baptist missionary William Carey (1761–1834) during his time
in India. Its purpose was to make the language accessible to European
learners, presenting its complex systems of verb conjugation, compound words
and affixation in a straightforward way. Reissued here in a two-volume set,
Volume 2 contains Books 4 and 5 of the work (covering word formation and
syntax), a detailed appendix on the roots of Sanskrit words, and an index.
Carey's reference works on Marathi and Bengali are also reissued in this
