This celebrated work on Indian Astronomy by Burgess was first published in the Journal of American Oriental Society. Owing to the time, thought and patient diligence devoted to the task, this translation stands out as a model of research work in the field of Hindu Astronomy. This edition, apart from re-printing the original translation, also carries an introduction which attempts at tracing the growth and development of the Surya Siddhanta as to its date, authorship and methods according to the most recent researches of its writer. The work also attempts at showing clearly the independence of the Hindu scientific astronomy of any foreign, more specially the Greek, source. Printed Pages:470.
