The Kapisthala-Katha-Samhita, a Vedic text of the Black Yajurveda, is presented here for the first time. All the differences between this and the Kathaka- Samhita have been noted, and a comparison made with allied ritual literature ranging from Rgveda to the Srautasutras. A large number of corrections and emendations in Schroeder's text of kath have also been suggested. The introduction deals with the ms. material, its grammatical peculiarities, the original home of the followers of this school, the relative date of the composition of the text, the additions and omissions as compared with Kath. And the relation to Rgveda. of the existence of a Kapisthala version of the Kath. Brahmana Preserved by the Taittiriyas, nothing was known till now. The fragment, as found in our ms, is given on pages 30-32.
