This book comprises a selection of 50 articles on Indian epigraphy and chronology written by Harry Falk and republished as facsimiles by his former colleagues and students on the occasion of his 65th birthday. The selected writings cover a period of almost two decades of Harry Falk’s scholarly activity at the Freie Universität Berlin. Most of the articles deal with inscribed objects dating to the early historical period inscribed in Kharoṣṭhī and Brāhmī. In many cases, the inscriptions are being published for the first time. Illustrations and photographs accompany most of the editions. The epigraphical studies are supplemented by Falk's innovative studies on Indian chronology. These introduce new perspectives on the early Indian eras such as those of Kaniṣka, Azes and the Yavanas. Comprehensive indices covering objects, names, places, words and general topics facilitate access to the contents. In addition, Harry Falk wrote an appendix in which he provides comments and corrections to his articles.
