Goldman and Sutherland are both professors at UC Berkeley where they teach Sanskrit and other related subjects. Both have been noted for their publications and translations, and for the beginning student of the Sanskrit language, there can be no better guide than this: per the book's dust jacket, "the book provides first year students with careful and lucid explanations of the major phonological, and morphological features of the language". ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in natural cloth with navy stamped lettering on the spine, plain endpapers; octavo size (9.25" by 6.25"), pagination: [xxxii], 475, three leaves of errata loosely laid in the back of the volume, stapled. Pink paper dust jacket with navy lettering and illustration on the front cover, navy lettering on the spine, summary of the book on the front flap, short author bios on the back flap. ***CONDITION: Volume fine, the cloth boards are clean and free of wear, the text block is strong and square with solid hinges, the interior is clean and bright, and the volume is free of prior owner markings; there is a small white-out mark on page 32 which seems to have corrected a mistake that is not listed in the errata.
