Descripción Paperback. Condición: New. 460 About The Book -: The great and increasing favour experienced by the Edinburgh Library Cabinet has induced the Publishers to employ the utmost exertion to make the present work, as it is more extensive than any of its predecessors, still more deserving of public approbation. To embody in a popular form and moderate compass a full view of the History, the Natural Features, the Political and Social State of British India, was, they were sensible, a task Which could be better accomplished by a combination of Varied talents than by any one individual.He then proceeds to exhibit that splendid series of discovery and Triumph by which the Portuguese achieved the Maritime Passage to India, and established their sway over a great extent of shores. After the discovery and early trade with India, the next Object is its History. This necessarily commences with the Mohammedan invasion, the remotest period concerning Which authentic records exist. A comprehensive view is taken of the Revolutions of the Patan and Mogul Dynasties, the most splendid in the East, and the story of which is diversified with striking vicissitudes of rise and fall. This is the Conquest of India by the British; when a few merchants, with a handful of troops, and struggling against European rivalry, subverted all the states which had sprung from the ruins of the Mogul empire, and became arbiters of the destiny of upwards of One Hundred Millions of human beings placed at the opposite extremity of the globe.The second volume consists of the following topics, namly, British Conquest of Bengal, War with Mysore, Conquest of Mysore, Mahratta war and Conquest of Central Indostan, Pindaree was and Conquest of the Mahrattas, Hindoo History and Mythology, Hindoo Manners and Literature, British Government of India, British Social System in India, Industry and Commerce of India. About the Author -: Hugh Murray FRSE FRGS (1779 1846) was a Scottish geographer and author. He is often referred to as Hew Murray. He was the younger son of Rev Matthew Murray FRSE (1735 1791), minister of North Berwick. Murray entered the Edinburgh excise office as a clerk.
