Ruins of desert Cathay : personal narrative of explorations in Central Asia and westernmost China by Aurel Stein( Book )

13 editions published between 1912 and 1968 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Hungarian born Aurel Stein was a British archaeologist and geographer noted for his pioneering exploration of Central Asia. This is an account of his second major expedition, from 1906-8. Returning to Khotan, Stein extended his original explorations farther eastwards for nearly a thousand miles. It was on this expedition that Stein explored the western end of the Great Wall of China and discovered the Cave of the Thousand Buddhas at Tun-Huang, where he made his greatest discovery of a vast library in a cave sealed since the 10th century. He removed thousands of documents including a copy of the Diamond Sutra whose date makes it the earliest printed book."--abebooks website
On Alexander's track to the Indus; personal narrative of explorations on the North-west frontier of India, carried out under the orders of H.M. Indian government by Aurel Stein( Book )

24 editions published between 1929 and 2016 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hungarian-born archaeologist Marc Aurel Stein (1862-1943) is probably best remembered today for his explorations in Chinese Turkestan, and especially his discovery of the Buddhist treasure of Dunhuang, described in his earlier works, Sand-Buried Ruins of Khotan and Ruins of Desert Cathay (also reissued in this series). Stein was equally interested in the territory north-west of the North-West Frontier, and in this highly illustrated 1929 work he describes an expedition to survey the route of Alexander the Great's invasion of India in 326 BCE. Having long been intrigued by 'that comparatively small area to the west of the Indus which Alexander's march of conquest towards India for a brief span of time illuminates as it were with the light of a meteor', and by archaeological remains showing a blend of Hellenistic and Buddhist art, Stein offers a fascinating account of an ancient clash of civilisations

30 editions published between 1903 and 2019 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1900 and 1901, the Hungarian-born archaeologist Marc Aurel Stein (1862-1943) made the first of several significant trips through Central Asia. In 1903, he published this account of his journey from Calcutta to London via the deserts of Chinese Turkestan. The text is richly illustrated with photographs of locations on the route followed by Stein's party, as well as of the people they encountered and many of the artefacts they excavated in the vicinity of the ancient oasis town of Khotan. Stein intended his book to be accessible to non-specialists, and his descriptions of the many important archaeological discoveries, such as Sanskrit texts of Buddhist scriptures, are interspersed with compelling human details and anecdotes about traversing the challenging terrain of eastern Central Asia. The work of an indefatigable explorer, this book sheds light on the spread of Graeco-Buddhist culture along the Silk Route

Rājataraṅgiṇi; the saga of the kings of Kaśmīr by Kalhaṇa( Book )

34 editions published between 1900 and 1989 in English and Italian and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kalhana's Rajatarangino is not only a classic of Sanskrit narrative poetry but is the earliest extant history of Kashmir. Written in the middle of the 12th century, in the age when the Crusaders of Europe were fighting in Western Asia. Kalhana's masterpiece is a unique blend of authentic chronicle and imaginative poetry inspired by the poet's passionate love of his exquisitely beautiful homeland. This famous English translation by R.S. Pandit was first published in 1935. It was out of print for many years until the Sahitya Akademi reprinted it in 1968. It was further reprinted several times. Except for minor typographical corrections, the text, introduction, foreword and the learned translator's copious notes are retained exactly as in the original edition." -- Book jacket

On Alexander's track to the Indus : personal narrative of explorations on the north-west frontier of India by Aurel Stein( Book )

14 editions published between 1929 and 2004 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marc Aurel Stein (1862-1943) was a Hungarian archaeologist who spent much of his life in the service of the British Empire in India. In the early years of the 20th century he conducted a series of important Central Asian expeditions traversing virtually the whole of the North-West frontier - territory not previously accessible to Europeans." "On Alexander's Track to the Indus, first published in 1929, is Aurel Stein's account of the expeditions he mounted following in the footsteps of Alexander the Great during the triumphant invasion that, interestingly, left not a trace in Indian literature or tradition." "Stein's account has justifiably achieved cult status for the dangers and hardships encountered during his own expeditions; for the light it sheds on Alexander's invasions, and the wonders of Stein's discoveries (such as Alexander's Aornos); the illumination it offers on all fields of interest from archaeology to Indian literary culture, Graeco-Buddhist art and the spread of Buddhism right across Asia."--Jacket
