Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 160520501X, Hardcover)

First published in 1906, this classic nine-volume history of the nation of India places it among the storied lands of antiquity, alongside Egypt, China, and Mesopotamia. Edited by American academic ABRAHAM VALENTINE WILLIAMS JACKSON (1862–1937), professor of Indo-Iranian languages at Columbia University, it offers a highly readable narrative of the Indian people and culture through to the time of its publication, when the nation was still part of the British Empire. Volume VI, Part 1 of From the First European Settlements to the Founding of the English East India Company, by British scholar SIR WILLIAM WILSON HUNTER (1840-1900), features entertaining and enlightening treatments of: • the closing of the old trade paths • the quest for India by sea • the struggle between Christendom and Islam for the Indian seas • the Portuguese policy in the East • England’s attempts to reach India in the 16th century • the constitution of the first English East Indian Company • and more. This beautiful replica of the 1906 first edition includes all the original illustrations.
