Arabic Classical Accounts of India and China
Arabic Classical Accounts of India and China
Description
From the Jacket

The work contains two books: (1) an account of India by Ibn Khurdadhbih (d. c. 912), one of the earliest Arab geographers, and forms a part of his world geography al-Masalik wa'l-Mamalik; (2) An account of India and China compiled in A.D. 851 and usually attributed to Sulayman, the Merchant. Professor Ahmad has presented the first complete English translation of the two works with exhaustive commentaries based on the latest editions of the works. The works deal with the geography, social and economic life of the peoples and the political set-up of India and China during the ninth century A.D. The account of China and India is based on the personal observations and experiences of merchants and travellers visiting these countries. The two works are of immense historical importance and provide valuable and authentic source material for the ancient history of India and China.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
