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 V, The Mohammedan Period as Described by Its Own Historians--consisting of selections from the eight-volume History of India as Described by Its Own Historians by British historian SIR HENRY MIERS ELLIOT (1803-1853)--features entertaining and enlightening treatments of: - the Arab conquest of Sind - the holy wars of Islam waged against Hindustan - rise of the house of Ghor - Raziya, the Mohammedan empress of India - Ala-Ad-Din's conquests on the Deccan - Timur's account of his invasion of India - the memoirs of the emperor Babar - and much more. This beautiful replica of the 1906 first edition includes all the original illustrations.
