Description

An indispensable classic, it is the only authoritative work of its kind in early twentieth century, this 2 volume set remains a stupendous account of Rajasthan's history till date.

This work has now for long been regarded as one of the chief English classics on India. Bardic traditional tales, legends and historical records kept by the Brahmin priests of temples have been the source for the author's information. In these two volumes, the complete history of Rajasthan has been compiled for the Future Historian.

Vol. 1 builds up from the geography of Rajasthan and ends with the creation of Ajmer, with a close look at its history, architecture, traditions and ancestry. There is a vivid translation of the inscriptions in the Rajput history. This fascinating account begins with the genealogical history of the tribes of Rajasthan. It goes on to examine the feudal system prevalent and a detailed look at the annals, religious establishment, festivals and customs of Mewar.

Vol. 2 is a vivid reconstruction of history which traces the annals of Mewar, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Amber, Haravati and Kota.
