This book completes the series of three volumes cataloguing the Javanese-language manuscripts housed in four repositories in the Central Javanese city of Surakarta that were preserved in microfilm under the auspices of the Cornell University’s Surakarta Manuscript Project. The present volume describes the manuscripts of the Radya Pustaka Museum and the private library of the late Panembahan Hardjonagoro, a body of materials that date from the early eighteenth to the early twentieth century. Detailing the contents of the 1,204 texts inscribed in these 478 manuscripts, Florida’s fully indexed catalogue guides the reader through a wide range of materials that include historical chronicles, Sufi poetry, wayang play texts, compendia of treaties and laws, sacred histories of Islam, works of calendrical divination, and early specimens of Javanese gamelan notation. Nancy K. Florida is Professor of Javanese and Islamic Studies, Center for Southeast Asian Studies, University of Michigan.
