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has somewhere pointed out, that history should always go hand with geography, not a few sidelights, often form hitherto unpublished and even unknown sources, have been supplied to obscure periods of the countries treated, in so far as fell within the scope of the present work.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.

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
