This volume is part of probably the most famous and authoritative reference work on the Rulers of India titled – ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF INDIAN RULE Cosmo Publications is pleased to announce the publication of the second part of this Classic Series on Indian history. These books are authentic documents from the past that are as valid and as useful today as when they were written, or even more so. These are books that have come to acquire a stature which was not apparent when they were published. Edited by the leading Indologist of his time – W. W. Hunter – the titles in this series reflect some of the best biographies ever attempted on the men who ruled India. Mr. Hunter indeed made sure that the task of writing the individual title was entrusted to the most suitable person as is amply reflected by the choice of the authors for the purpose. That the titles are indeed classics is clearly demonstrated by some of the press reviews included here. A total of twenty-four volumes are now available. ‘High as is the standard of excellence attained by the volumes of this series, Sir Auckland Colvin’s earnest work has reached the high-water mark.’ – Army and Navy Gazette. ‘Sir Auckland Colvin gives us an admirable study of his subject, both as a man of affairs and as a student in private life. In doing this, his picture-sque theme allows him, to present graphic pictures of old Calcutta and Indian life in general.’ – Manchester Courier. ‘The monograph is a valuable addition to a series of which we have more than once pointed out the utility and the excellence.’ – Glasgow Herald.
