Published by I.B. Tauris & Co. Ltd.. 1st. 2007
Fine condition in a fine dustwrapper. The Mughal Empire created one of the richest and most colourful of all historical periods. A few of the Europeans who began crisscrossing the roads of Mughal India wrote, in the forms of diaries, letters and travelogues, about the people and lands they encountered. This illuminating and carefully chosen anthology contains a collection of among the best writings by European travellers as they journeyed the length and breadth of the Empire over a 200-year period (1471-1671). Burgundy boards, gilt title to spine.
