This book, of two volumes bound in one, is a translation of original Turki text of the autobiographic presentation of an arresting personality - Mughal Emperor Babur.This work truly embodies the career of the founder of the Mughal empire in India. It has the rare distinction of being contemporary with the events it describes. Babur Nama has the complete record of Babur's life when Babur ascended the throne at the young age of eleven to September 1529 when he had established himself as a monarch.Translated by Annette Susannah Beveridge this memoir is unique not only from the historical point of view but also from the rich literary contributions to the oriental languages. With the Memoirs of Babur began the tradition of autobiographical writings followed by some of his successors.
