Researches on Ptolemy's Geography of Eastern Asia (Further India and Indo-Malay Archipelago)
Researches on Ptolemy's Geography of Eastern Asia (Further India and Indo-Malay Archipelago)
Description
About the Book:

The present work elucidates an ancient text and department of historical geography which will prove of some retrospective value of the study of historic, linguistic ethnologic and geographic aspects of the countries it deals with. Mindful, moreover of the maxim that geography is the eye of history and vice versa, as Carlyle has somewhere pointed out, that history should always go hand with geography, not a few sidelights, often form hitherto unpublished and even unknown sources, have been supplied to obscure periods of the countries treated, in so far as fell within the scope of the present work. Hence it is hoped that on this ground alone the study of the Ptolemaic Geography of Further India will become indispensable to orient lists. Though the volume is mainly devoted to Further India and the Indo-Malay Archipelago, albeit the Tables cover a far wider field including China and Central Asia.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition.
