The Burmese Empire a hundred years ago


As described by Father Vincenzo Sangermano,
• First published: 1833, with Preface by N. Wiseman, dated: Rome, June 1, 1833
• Second edition: 1885, with Preface by John Jardine, dated: Rangoon, Apri 5, 1884
• Third edition: 1893, with Introduction and Notes by John Jardine and published at Westminster.

UKT 130924: I have a downloaded PDF of Third edition from one of Internet websites some time ago. I cannot remember the website now: most probably from: http://books.google.ca/books/about/The_Burmese_empire ... (download date ?)
There might be mismatch in page numbers between this PDF and the reprint of 1995 which I have bought from White Orchid Press, Thailand. Since, I can carry only a few books while on the move between Canada and Myanmarprι, and because the Sangermano's book is of low priority, I have no choice but to use the downloaded PDF with me..

• Fifth edition: 1966, with Introduction and Notes by John Jardine, translated by Tandy, W. (Susil Gupta, London), 5th ed. 1966, pp.311. UKT hand-copied some portions in 1972-73
• Reprinted: 1995 ISBN 974-89219-2-1, published by White Orchid Press, Thailand.

UKT 130707: It is the most difficult to edit because of terms which I could not recognize. To make my task easier I am splitting the book into two parts,
• Prefaces, John Jardine's Introduction, TIL-collection, and
• Sangermano's work proper.

Doggie's Tale

Mnemonic The Doggie Tale: 
Little doggie cringe in fear -- ŋ (velar),
  Seeing Ella's flapping ears -- ɲ (palatal)
  And, the Shepard's hanging rear -- ɳ (retroflex).
Doggie so sad he can't get it out
  What's that Kasha क्ष when there's a Kha ख ?
  And when there's Jana ज्ञ what I am to do with Jha झ?
