The Sanskrit philologist and librarian Johannes Emil Otto Klatt (1852-1903) dedicated his short life to the study of the historical records of the Jainas. Klatt left behind the nearly completed manuscript of his monumental Jaina-Onomasticon of 1892, a 5338 page long anthology of proper names (Greek: onoma) and biographies of Jaina authors, texts and place names with explanatory historical notes, handwritten in English. The print edition with a historical introduction to author this unsurpassed work, a recognized classic in the fields of Indology and the History of Religion, and indispensable source of reference both for the study of Jaina social and intellectual history and of the history of Oriental Studies.
