"This monograph publishes for the first time a pothi or palm leaf manuscript of the Amarushataka from Orissa in the collection of the Rietberg Museum in Zurich. While the verses are, without doubt, some of the greatest in the annals of Sanskrit literature - they have been hailed throughout India as classics even up to the present day - is it the illustrations of this work that have absorbed and concern us here. " -- From the Preface by Eberhard Fischer and Dinanath Pathy
