Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Gandhavamsa:A late Pali work written in Burma.

It relates,in brief,the history of the Pāli Canon and gives accounts of post-canonical Pali books written in Burma and Ceylon.

The colophon states that the work was composed by a forest-dwelling Elder named Nandapañña.At the end of each chapter the work is referred to as Cullagandhavamsa; perhaps what we have now is an abridged edition of a larger work.

The work is published in J.P.T.S.,1886,pp.55-80.
