Welcome to the Clay Sanskrit Library
In the late 1990's, when John Clay started to work on the concepts for the Clay Sanskrit Library ("CSL"), his key objective was to produce fifty titles. After ten years of progress, the list of volumes set for publication encompasses well over fifty works, as shown at http://www.claysanskritlibrary.org/volumes_all.php.
This summer (Year 2009), the current programme of development of additional texts is being brought to a close. Published volumes may be purchased through the distribution sources listed at http://www.claysanskritlibrary.org/order.php.
John Clay would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who helped to ensure the success of this pioneering publishing programme.
John Clay's vision came to life in the late 1990's, when he began to put the people and resources together for what would become the Clay Sanskrit Library. Since the publication of the first volume in 2005, forty-nine volumes have been published, including twelve new volumes in 2009, and another seven titles are scheduled to be released in August 2009. The selection represents the richness and wide variety of Sanskrit literature, covering works of drama, poetry, satire and novels, as well as the two famous epics, the Maha·bhárata and the Ramáyana.
The Clay Sanskrit Library is a series of books covering a wide spectrum of Classical Sanskrit literature spanning two millennia. Bound in the convenient pocket size (4.5" x 6.5") in an elegant design, each work features the original Sanskrit text in transliterated Roman letters on the left-hand page with its English translation on the facing page.
