#1 Want to buy / photocopy the book "Javalis of Sri Chinniah, eldest among the Tanjore quartett[e]"

Post by kkbava »

Hi all,

We're publishing lyrics of a few hundred jAvaLis that my mother collected during her research work, at https://javali.blog. She had collected photocopies of books from various libraries and personal collections of other collectors - across Andhra, Tamilnadu, and Karnataka.

Last set I was typing were from the book "Javalis of Sri Chinniah, eldest among the Tanjore quartett[e]". (https://books.google.co.in/books?id=McF ... AXoECAIQAg )
She could only locate her hand-written pages, but not the book / photocopy (she thinks she had bought the book earlier).

1) In case any of you are aware of where I can source the book from, please let me know
2) In case it is out of stock in all stores, if any of you have a personal copy, please let me know - if we could borrow a copy of the same
3) Google books says it has 55 pages, but, my mother's notes have only 23 jAvaLis. Did she miss any? Or, does the book contain only 23?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Regards,
Krishna Kishore

There is another book of jAvaLis that can be downloaded from here:

Thank you sir!
One way, it confirms that the jAvaLis we have from the Chinniah book are indeed the only ones and we didnt miss any.
Would you, by any chance, have a photocopy of the coverpage? (Only to add to the blog site, no specific value add)

My original request for assistance to buy the book still stands - in case any of you are aware of any store that sells, please let me know

Regarding the Brinda book - thank you sir! I'll check once again, but guess we have those lined up to be posted.

Regards,
