URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/knowledge/isbn/item6480127/The%20Language%20of%20the%20Kharo%E1%B9%A3%E1%B9%ADhi%20Documents%20from%20Chinese%20Turkestan/?site_locale=en_US
Description:

The documents discussed in this 1937 book were found by Sir Aurel Stein at
the turn of the twentieth century. In this text, they were interpreted for
the first time. Mr Burrow has identified the language in which they are
written, and has succeeded in interpreting their meaning. He here presents
a grammar of the language, with a full discussion of its peculiarities and
its relation to other Indian languages.
