Cosmo Dictionary of Dyeing & Calico Printing

By Charles O Neill

Cosmo Publications, 2008. First edition. Hardcover. New. This work is intended by the Author to form a practical handbook of reference upon all the chemical substances and processes in use among dyers and calico printers. While written from a practical point of view, it takes a middle course betw-een the generalities of high science and the technicalities of pure practice. Avoiding, on the one hand, the applications of chemical principles which are not yet clearly perceived, and, on the other, a detailed description of processes which would be either in unintelligible or unnecessary, the Author hopes he has produced a book which may be profitably consulted by all who are either interested or practically engaged in printing and dyeing. The claims which the Author has to be heard upon these subjects rest upon his familiar acquaintance with calico printing, acquired by nine years’ service in very extensive establish-ment, and upon a further professional experience of three years, which has brought him into contact with nearly all styles of dyeing.

Illustrated Dictionary of Environmental Studies

By Fredd Micheals

Lotus Press Publishers & Distributors, 2004. Softcover. New. If anyone had to differentiate the closing decades of 20th century from other periods in history, surely acute Environmental consciousness and a concern for Ecology would be one of the most important characteristics of our generation`s perception. Partly as a result of Green groups activities, partly due to the explosion of information about the harm we have already done to the environment, all other issues got thrust into the background. The Scientific Study of Environment is not very old. It draws on Geology and Physics for its theoretical basis, but the application of these principles to practical affairs is difficult and complex. This dictionary brings together the latest in this field of study to the interested reader. He will be in a position to know the usefulness (or otherwise) of dams, polar ice melt, Soil Erosion etc. on a solid, scientific basis and be in position to take an independent stand on the shrill War of words between the Greens and Governments.

Dictionary of Hindu Gods and Goddesses

By T.R.R. Iyengar

D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd. New Delhi, 2007. 2nd edition. Paperback. New. 15 X 23 cm. The book systematically studies various Hindu gods and goddesses based on Hindu sacred literature. It covers their earliest references and the evolution of their worship, their attributes and forms, and their signific-ance in the Hindu scheme of worship. It also includes references to many animate/inanimate sacred beings/things associated with the deities. The Hindu pantheon of gods and goddesses has evolved over many millennia from a simple worship of elements and phenomena of nature to a complex system of myriad gods and goddesses of differing physical attributes, characteristic features and functions and each with different forms. The present Dictionary is an attempt to provide an in-depth yet comprehensive account of Hindu gods and goddesses referring to all the important religious sources. Based on Hindu sacred literature including the Vedas, epics and the Puranas, the book is a systematic study, in alphabetical order, of various Hindu gods and goddesses covering aspects such as the evolution of their worship and their earliest references in texts, stories of their birth and achievements, their attributes, their significance in the Hindu scheme of worship, their forms of representations, and their relationship with one another. It has references to not only personified beings but also other animate and inanimate ‘sacred’ beings/things, seen in close association with the deities and worshipped by devotees, like Nandi, the bull, the snakes, the banyan and pipal trees, the saligramas and the banalingas. The adornments, vahanas, weapons and places associated with the deities are also elaborately discussed. The Dictionary will be an immensely useful reference work for scholars of ancient Indian mythology and religion as well as general readers willing to know more about Hindu gods and goddesses.

English-Pali Dictionary

By A.P. Buddhadatta Mahathera

Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2007. 5th or later edition. Hardcover. New. 15 x 23 cm. Here is a reprint of the English-Pali Dictionary by A.P. Buddhadatta Mahathera published long ago by the Pali Text Society in Roman script. This publication was then considered a notable event in the life of the Society for it was a great improvement on a similar earlier work by Venerable W. Piyatissa whose usefulness was reduced for the English-speaking readers by the Pali words being given in Sinhalese script. This is a consider ably enlarged form of a concise English-Pali Dictionary compiled by the present author during the second World War. The author has coined many new words and has given more than one Pali word for some English verbs which do not exist in the ancient languages like Pali. This dictionary, though not an exhaustive one, has proved much useful to the scholars of the Pali language as it presents well chosen material in a single volume of a manageable size. (by the same author) CONCISE PALI-ENGLISH DICTIONARY - This Concise Pali-English Dictionary has been prepared mainly for use by students in schools and colleges. The author is not only an eminent Elder of the Buddhist Order but one of the leading Pali scholars recognized both in the East and West as an authority on the subject. It is to be observed that the author has kept more or less to the traditional sense of words while not altogether ignoring the meanings given by western scholars in their translations and lexicons. Many errors in the latter sources have also been rectified. But the basic sense adopted is in nearly every instance the traditionally accepted meaning in accord with the commentaries and the glossaries. This perhaps is of special value to beginners as thereby they get introduced to the indigenous tradition, thus providing a useful basis on which to build up a more scientific knowledge as the study advances.
