2 Francois Bernier
Travels in the Mogul Empire AD 1656-68: trans. On the basis of Irving Brock's version and annotated by Archibald Constable, sec. Edn. Revised by V.A. Smith
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 81-215-0568-0; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present work continues to remain as important and as popular as it was in 1671, when its English edition was published. John Dryden, the famous poet and dramatist, drew his inspiration from his last and perfect tragedy Aurang-zebe from the same book. Francois Bernier, being a physician, had an unlimited access. In Mughal India, he could go anywhere from South to North. This freedom of movement combined with his powers of observation adds authority to his narrative. His account of various events during Mughal regime is interesting, because it not only deals with Shah Jahan and his children, their intrigues and battles for the throne but it also deals with subjects like reception of ambassadors; upbringing of princes; bravery of Uzbec women; beauty of Kashmiri women; fishes in the Verinag pool; price of wine; living conditions in the cities of Agra, Delhi and Lahore; flattery in Mughal court; corrupt officials; wealth of the Mughals and condition of the peasants, etc. This translation, by Archibald Constable is revised by the famous historian Vincent A. Smith. As a source book for the conditions in India during the days of the Mughal rule, this book has no rival. Printed Pages: 554. 024182
