An Encyclopaedia Of Hindu Architecture (Manasara Series: Vol. VII)
An Encyclopaedia Of Hindu Architecture (Manasara Series: Vol. VII)
Description
From the Jacket:

An Encyclopaedia of Hindu Architecture is comprehensive work on the technical terminology now obsolete but then in vogue of the creators of such epics in stone as those of Sanchi and Konark during the ancient and medieval periods of Indian History. It contains about three thousand terms culled with indefatigable industry spread over a long span of years from ancient architectural treatise Manasara and Vastu-Sastras, Agamas, Puranas, Brahmanas Sutras, epics, Literary works, epigraphical records and manuscripts in obscure scripts. The terms are arranged in the order of Sanskrit alphabet. A brief rendering in English followed by extensive quotations from various sources and supplemented by line drawings and photographs elucidate every aspect of the term, leaving no room from ambiguity. Two appendices one giving a sketch of Sanskrit treatise on architecture and the other furnishing a list of historical architects with short notes on their works, are needed.

This monumental work has remained a standard treatise of reference since its publication in 1946 for all connected with architecture.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
