Pbofessoe FATJSBOLL. Db. MORRIS. Pkofessob OLDENBERG. M. EMILE SENART, de 1I nstitut. T. W. RHYS DAVIDS, Chairman. (W ith power to add workers to their numher.) Hon. Treasurer W. W, HUNTER, Esq., C.I.E., LL.D. Son, Secretary JJ, B. BRODRIBB, Esq., B.A., 3, Brick Court, Temple, E.G. This Society has been started in order to render accessible to students the rich stores of the earliest Buddhist literature now lying unedited and practically unused in the various MSS. scattered throughout the University and other Public Libraries of Europe. The historical importance of these Texts can scarcely be exaggerated either in respect of their value for the history of folk-lore, or of religion, or of language. It is already certain that they were all put into their present form within a very limited period, probably extending to less than a century and a half (about B.C. 400-250). For that period they have preserved for us a record, quite uncontaminated by filtration through any European mind, of the every-day beliefs and customs of a people nearly related to ourselves, just as they were passing through the first stages of civilization.
