"Jones's Persian grammar, at the time of its first edition in 1771 the fourth one published after those of De Dieu, Greaves, and Ignatius, has always had a special appeal owing to its "great elegance and humanity" (Arberry, Oriental essays 51). From the third edition it was edited and revised by J. Richardson, and from the sixth edition (1804) with the new types "planned and chiefly executed" by Charles Wilkins for W. Martin, printer to the East India Company. With these naskhî types in two sizes, two texts are printed: an Extract from the Memoirs of Jahângîr (pp. 151*-152*) and a Description of Agra by the same (pp. 153*-154*). The naskhî types are expressly selected: The niskhi should be preferred for printing (p. 147, with a reference to Forms of Herkern , Calcutta 1781)." (Smitskamp Cat.).
