South Asia Collection continues to procure materials for the study of the region

The South Asia Collection at the University of Pennsylvania’s Van Pelt library is continuously purchasing artifacts to support student and faculty research. One of its latest purchases includes a manuscript the Rāgamālā dating back to A.H. 1214-1219 (1799-1804) and focuses on the modes of Indian music. Other miniatures depict scenes at court. The text is followed by a commentary.
