The Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan, after its publication brought to entire world not only the resounding echoes of drums and cavalcades from the remote highlands of Rajasthan, awakening people to a blazing trial of imagination about the traditions of courage, chivalry, romance and sacrifice but also its geographical background, economic resources, social system, political organization and religion. This book has been considered by scholars as an indispensable storehouse of material dealing with various facets which usually find no place in any historical account and has thus rightly been called 'an encyclopaedia ob the land including some parts of central and western India in general and Rajasthan and the Tajputs in particular. The collection of material as a vital precondition to the writing of history was never lost sight of by Tod. During his connection with Rajputana he showed an untiring zeal in the search for the historical data which is very well reflected in this book. Despite it's shortcomings, as this being the first historical work of its kind the book serves as one of the original contributions on Rajasthan which had laid the foundation of the systematic study of the history of the land. Printed Pages: 1332 with 1 map and 2 tables.
