For the very first time, the Doha Ramayana is presented here in full, with scholarly essays by Marika Sardar, Audrey Truschke and John Seyller, bringing this extraordinary manuscript to a wider audience
Deccani paintings, drawings and manuscripts in the Jagdish and Kamla Mittal Museum of Indian Art by Jagdish and Kamla Mittal Museum of Indian Art( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This meticulously researched, beautifully written, and sumptuously illustrated catalogue of Deccani paintings, drawings, and manuscripts in the Jagadish and Kamla Mittal Museum of Indian Art in Hyderabad is certain to become a landmark in the study of Indian miniature painting. By far the most comprehensive publication on painting in the Deccan, a region that spans south-central India, it provides sensitive analyses of 104 exquisite paintings, drawings, and manuscripts collected over six decades by Jagdish and Kamla Mittal, a husband and wife team of artist-connoisseurs residing in Hyderbad, the pre-eminent cultural centre of the Deccan, as well as 49 comparative works from other collections. Alongside new insights into important paintings from the courts of Ahmadnagar, Bijapur, and Golkonda in the 16th and 17th centuries are discoveries from the later courts at Aurangabad and Hyderabad, including several newly identified major artist. Paintings from such places as Berar, Ellichpur, Nagpur, and Nossam are discussed in depth for the first time, as are works produced at the little known tributary states once loosely allied with the Nizam of Hyderabad. The superb quality of the illustrations, the selection of choice details, and the inclusion of revealing comparative material make this highly informative book essential to anyone who studies or enjoys Indian miniature painting--Supplied by vendor
