The history of India, as told by its own historians. The Muhammadan period by H. M Elliot( Book )

412 editions published between 1855 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extensive eight-volume work was first published between 1867 and 1877 by the linguist John Dowson (1820-81) from the manuscripts of the colonial administrator and scholar Sir Henry Miers Elliot (1808-53). Before his death, hoping to bolster British colonial ideology, Elliot had intended to evaluate scores of Arabic and Persian historians of India, believing that his translations would demonstrate the violence of the Muslim rulers and 'make our native subjects more sensible of the immense advantages accruing to them under the mildness and the equity of our rule'. The collection is therefore not only valuable for its translation into English of many important extracts of sources from the ninth century to the nineteenth, but it also serves as a fascinating example of the use of historiography as a colonial tool

The Jahangirnama : memoirs of Jahangir, Emperor of India by Jahangir( Book )

7 editions published between 1952 and 1987 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wheeler Thackston's new translation of The Jahangirnama, copublished with the Freer Gallery of Art and the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, presents a portrait of a remarkable emperor during the course of his reign (1605-27)." "Emperor Jahangir is probably best known in the West as the father of Shahjahan, who built the Taj Mahal. Jahangir's reign was one of great prosperity, and his passion for art and nature encouraged an artistic flowering that rivaled European art during the rule of the Medicis. Jahangir's memoirs provide not only the history of his reign, but also his reflections on art, politics, and life, including the suicide of one of his wives, and selections of poetry written by members of his harem. This book includes a selection of exquisite full-color paintings, drawings, and objects that specifically illustrate the passages they accompany."--Jacket
