Excerpt from Journal of the Pali Text Society, 1897-1901
A few words of preface are needed to explain a title perhaps rather large and vague for a work of reference with very definite limits.
The field of P511 Buddhist literature is vast, and has been already widely ... explored. The aim of the following Index, undertaken for the Pali Text Society, is to be some help towards the saving of time in future research. It brings together a number of words annotated in various translations of Pali Texts (giving references by volume and page). Very many of the words indexed 'do not occur in Childers' Dictionary, and a great number of them have been commented on in notes of historical, philological, or bibliographical interest, with references to parallel passages.
It will be seen that the translators cited by name are very few in number. The selection (necessary for a brief work of this kind) was made on the plan of keeping to some well-known and easily accessible translations of complete texts. Grammatical works, separate articles.
