According to Brandes’ communication in the Notulen van de Directievergaderingen van het Bataviaasch Genootschap, vol. 36, 1898, the seven plates of the Sarwadharma charter were found in that year on the Pĕnampihan estate in the Wilis massif, district of Tulung-Agung, Kaḍiri. The text as edited in the present book is copied from Brandes’ transcription which has been published by Krom in 1913 (Oud-Javaansche Oorkonden, II, p. 188) without translation or commentary. Brandes seems to have transcribed the text from photographs. Some mistakes may be ascribed to that fact. The letters and words that are printed in italics were marked by Brandes as not quite clear. On the whole the text is in a good state.
