The seventh and final index volume in this catalogue, this marks the completion of one of the largest oriental cataloguing projects undertaken by the British Library this century. It documents the whole Hugh Nevill collection of over 2000 texts, which are not only of relevance to Sinhalese Buddhist literature, but more widely to the social and intellectual history of the later Theravadin tradition in Sri Lanka.
