This is a Facsimile PDF. It has 717 pages and was published in 1885.
From the Preface: 'While this work professes to be a catalogue of the names used by the Bihar peasant for the things surrounding him in his daily life, yet, in order to relieve the dryness which such a mere list would possess, the writer has attempted to give a description, more or less complete, of that life and of its character and incidents. The book is in fact a discursive catalogue, and it is hoped that it may serve as a solid foundation for more elaborate disquisitions on the Bihar raiyat and his surroundings.'
