It is well-known that only a small portion of the vast Sanskrit literature has so far published while the major part of the literature still lies in manuscripts written in various scripts and on various types of material Some of the collections are preserved in India and abroad many more are in private collections.
During the nineteenth century when the British rulers of India and European Indologists took keen interest in Indian studies particularly in the study of various branches of Sanskrit literature projects were taken up to take stock of Sanskrit manuscripts lying in private collections throughout the length and breadth of the country The search of manuscripts in Eastern India was assigned to the illustrious scholar Raja Rajendralala Mitra 1822-1891 He carried on extensive searches for manuscripts in Bengal Bihar and Orissa and also made a survey of the manuscript found in some private collections in Benaras Varanasi He then compiled a descriptive catalogue of the manuscripts so surveyed by him The catalogue was published under the title Notices of Sanskrit Manuscripts by the Asiatic Society of Bengal between 1871 and 1888 in nine volumes These nine volumes constitute the First Series of the Notices.
After the demise of Mitra Mahamahopadhyaya Haraprasada Sastri 1853-1931 took up the search further carried it on and the results of his search were published in four more volumes constituting the Second Series of the Notices by the Asiatic Society of Bengal between 1900 and 1911The Notices record all the necessary details about each manuscript listed viz the title the author the substance size line in a page character date name of the scribe the place of deposit and condition Besides long extracts from the beginning and the end of the manuscript have been recorded This part of the record is very important since it gives a fair idea about the contents subject and merit of the composition The Notices cover almost all branches of Sanskrit learning right from the Vedas to the Dharmasastra poetry grammar and lexicons philosophies rituals astronomy and astrology mathematics stotras commentaries glosses etc etc The work also brings out the trends in the Sanskrit studies during the classical and medieval ages in Eastern India In brief the notices contain invaluable research material for the studies of Indian literature mythology philosophy religion and material sciences
