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.
