British Library​: Javanese Manuscripts from Yogyakarta Digitalisation Project

S. P. Lohia firmly believes in the preservation and transmission of cultural heritage and is proud to have supported the digitisation of 75 Javanese manuscripts from Yogyakarta held in the British Library. The manuscripts in the Yogyakarta Royal Library had been appropriated during the British administration of Java (1811 – 1816). In 1970 Dr Peter Carey of Trinity College, Oxford, began a project to identify all the manuscripts originating from the court of Johyakarta in the British Library. Thanks to the generous support of SP Lohia, these precious manuscripts were digitised and are now fully and freely accessible online through the British Library’s website and Mr Lohia’s SPL Rare Books Collection website.
