This authentic and authoritative History of Jaipur was commissioned by Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II, the last ruler of the erstwhile Jaipur state. Sir Jadunath Sarkar agreed to take up the assignment and completed the manuscript in 1939-40. This book was finally published, as it was originally written, more than 40 years later in 1984. The author meticulously documented the history of the Kachhwa rulers of Jaipur. He ploughed through a profusion of raw material preserved almost intact for three and a half centuries in teh Kachhwa House to present a compelling history of the Jaipur dynasty. Lucidly written, this book will be of interest to scholars and general readers alike. Printed Pages: 428.
