I think that author you have mentioned is different from the above
author(s). Due to busy schedule I am not able to contact Chaukhamba
Sanskrit Pustkalaya, Varanasi H.O., Varanasi

Contact details from online portals
JD <http://www.justdial.com/Varanasi/publications-%3Cnear%3E-chaukhamba>

I hope the info given is correct.

I have already contacted Bharatiya Kala Prakashan and they said that the
book is available only in sanskrit. Hindi and english versions are not is
demand and so he does not know when they will be re-printed.
