Madras District Gazetteer: The Nilgiris
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1986; 8172680708 / 9788172680701; Hardcover; New; New; 
The preparation of district, provincial and Imperial Gazetteers was part of a tradition set up by the Raj. British civilians in India undertook the preparation of these enormously useful projects under their supervision. District Officers or Deputy Commissioners assisted in the collection of material and often wrote entire reports themselves. These official records provide a wealth of material on all aspects of the regions covered be they districts of provinces. They also include detailed information about the inhabitants, their way of life, habits, customs, religious rites and rituals, festivals and indeed every thing concerning them. This reprint of a District Gazetteer presents a beautiful picture of the picturesque region known as the Nilgiri Hills-Properly Nila-giri, the Blue Mountains. A great plateau (about 35 miles long, 20 broad and some 6,500 feet high) up heaved at the junction of the ranges of the Eastern and Western Ghats which ran southwards at a converging angle through the Madras Presidency. The District Nilgiris includes, besides the great plateau, three widely different outlying tracts; namely a strip of malarias jungle skirting the northern foot of the plateau; the Ouchterlong Valley on the west, a deeprecess in the high walls of the plateau; and, still further west, the country known as the south-east Wynaad, a table-land of bamboo forest. The description of rivers and waterfalls; minerals- mica, iron and gold; geological, botanical and zoological details of the region are the highlights of the book. Besides, it speaks highly education administration of justice and local self-government of the district. The author W. Francis I.C.S. has gone thoroughly deep in the intricacies of all the topics while describing about the Nilgiris. This timely reprint of a district gazetteer should be invaluable as a reference tool for researchers today. Anthropologists and sociologists will also find substantial material for a restudy of these fascinating people while the lay reader will delve into its pages with great profit.

The Jataka or Stories of the Buddha's Former Births (6 Vols in 3 Parts)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1990; 8120807251 / 9788120807259; Sixth Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
In India recollection of previous lives is a common feature in the histories of the saints and heroes of sacred tradition. The doctrine of transmigration, since the later Vedic period, has played such an important part in the history of the national character and religious ideas that even buddhist literature has included the ages of the past as an authentic background to the founder's historical life as Gautama. Jataka stories or birth legends were widely known in the third century B.C. The Pali work, entitled "The Jataka" contains 537 Birth-stories of the Buddha's former births. Each story, narrated by the Buddha, opens with a preface relating the particular circumstances in the Buddha's life, revealing some events in the long series of his previous existences as a bodhisattva. At the end the buddha identifies the different actors in the story in their present births. These stories magnify the glory of the buddha and illustrate buddhist doctrines and precepts by appropriate example. The foremost interest of these legends lies in their relation to folklore giving a vivid picture of the social life and customs of ancient India. The famous translations of the Jataka Stories from Pali edited by Prof. E.B. Cowell are now once again being made available to the general public in three volumes. 102375
