The book presents illustrative account of the Myths of the Hindus and the Buddhist with 32 beautiful coloured pictures. The author has related in such as manner as close to the originals possible, but usually much condensed, such of the myths as are more or less familiar to every educated Indian, with whom the author include all those illiterate but wise peasants and women whose knowledge of the Puranas has been gained by listening to recitations or reading, by visiting temples, or from folk-songs or mystery plays. The stories related here, moreover, include very much of which a knowledge is absolutely essential for every foreigner who proposes in any way to co-operate with the Indian people for the attainment of their desired ends-nowhere more clearly formulated than in mythology and art. Printed Pages: 416 with 32 colour plates.
