I would recommend (the late) Prof. Ingalls' book without hesitation.
If I remember correctly, he is said to have studied nyAya in a traditional
way under a scholar called kAlIpAda tarkAchArya of Calcutta.
Years ago, it was Ingalls' book that helped me understand the intricacies
of navya nyAya. During those days I was rather crazy about the field
of Knowledge Representation in Arificial Intelligence. What quickly
caught my attention was the emphasis on formalization of nyAya
terminology and language in navya nyAya. I dreamed up a scheme of
machine representation of the navya nyAya formalization that lends itself
to highly parallel (meaning efficient) inference, and presented
the same in a conference on Parallel Processing in Pune, India.
