2 Louis Rousselet
India and Its Native Princes
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8192091201 / 9788192091204; Hardcover; New; New; 
From the early 19th century when the East India Company began to consolidate its rule, the princes were often seen as one of the most useful allies of the empire. Later, after the enactment of the Act of 1935, conservative opinion in Great Britain saw them as an instrument for thwarting the federation proposals and thereby maintaining British power at the centre.India and its Native Princes is an exquisitely detailed study replete with stories and vivid descriptions of persons, events, and places. It carries photographs of palaces, forts, religious places, and animals, and of the tribal people. A picture of the three Gonds is stunning. Sadly, some of the monuments imaged and represented in this book no longer exist. As a travelogue, it is instructive, meticulously researched and written fluently. Originally published by Bickers & Son, in 1882 the book covers Central India, a neglected region in British India, and the Bombay and Bengal Presidencies. Princely India is exhaustively covered–Gwalior, Bhopal and Hyderabad.Printed Pages: 638 with 231 b/w illustrations & 3 maps. 106575

3 Louis Rousselet
India and its Native Princes: Travels in Central India and in the Presidencies of Bombay and Bengal
Asian Educational Services; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8120618874 / 9788120618879; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is the effort of the author, a noted French author of his time, who traveled between 1864 and 1865, and then studied in India for 6 years. The geographical of this book is vast, and covers all of western, central, and northern India upto Delhi. There are short notices of Panjab, the Himalaya mountains, Bihar, and Bengal too. The title of the book lays bare its strain : the author wanted to visit and see for himself the courts and the countries that the native chiefs ruled over, and what was their mode of living, and condition of the civilisation. With this view he undertook his travels and visited as many courts as he could. All throughout the book the reader will find insightful notices of the pomp and pageantry, the civility, the politics and intrigues, the popular history, acute descriptions of monuments and buildings – both inhabited and the ones in ruins, description of festivals, native customs and beliefs, the social order, etc. Accompanying the text is a treasure of over 300 engravings that illustrate the running narrative, and 6 maps. This book is a reprint of the 1876 edition.Printed Pages: 596. 102872
