Among the several European peoples who had early contacts with India, the French occupied a special position. Recent research by French and Indian scholars has revealed many new aspects of the interaction that took place between France and India during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Libraries and archives in France contain rich and as yet unpublished documentation on the subject. In this book Jean-Marie Lafont brings together for the first time a collection of drawings and maps of cities and monuments in eighteenth-century India. The fifty colour illustrations of plans and views of palaces, cities and monuments by French and Indian architects and engineers published here are drawn from the Centre des Archives d'Outre-Mer, Archives Nationales and the Gentil Album of Palais Indiens at the Bibliothque Nationale, Paris. Printed Pages: 176.
