This collection of Sinhalese manuscripts includes large parts of the Pali canon, mostly with sannaya or Sinhalese explanatory glosses, as well as Sinhalese Buddhist and popular secular literature, poetry, history, and folk tales.
This catalog of the collection was written by K.D. Somadasa; the manuscripts are in the British Library.
