This volume comprises two ancient works on law in translation, of which one is Narada Smrti and the other is Brhaspati Smrti. THE repute of Narada as a legal writer has been so great as to embody upwards of half his work, in the authoritative compositions of the mediaeval and modern writers in the province of Sanskrit law, while the fragments of Brhaspati are among the most precious relics of the early legal literature of India. THE Narada-Smriti or Naradiya Dharmasastra first attracted attention nearly two centuries ago. What caused it to be brought before the notice of the learned world was its bearing on the origin and history of the authoritative law-book of ancient India.
