Nice work. Do you know about these Sanskrit books? They're all in Oxford's library.

Thanks. I do not know these Sanskrit books no but I am sure they must be in Oxford libraries, best being to check OLIS/SOLO.

Any linguistics queries really I would pass on to my colleague Dr Sytsema, the Linguistics Librarian at Oxford Uni.
