Description: In May 2010, Johann Ernst Hanxleden’s Grammatica Grandonica was rediscovered in Monte Compatri (Lazio, Rome) by Toon Van Hal. Although historiographers recognized the importance of the nearly oldest western grammar of Sanskrit, the precious manuscript had been lost for several decades. The primary aim of the present digital publication is to offer a photographical reproduction of the manuscript. This facsimile is accompanied by a double edition: a facing diplomatic edition with the Sanskrit in Malayāḷam script, followed by a transliterated text. This preliminary edition, devoid of any apparatus, is preceded by an introduction dealing with (1) the missionary context, (2) the life and works of the author, (3) the contents, peculiarities and history of his grammar, and (4) the editorial principles used.
