Antiquities of India
This is a Facsimile PDF. It has 374 pages and was published in 1893.
Taken from the Preface: 'The purpose of this book is to present within a moderate compass a general survey of the history and culture of ancient India, It therefore begins with an outline of the historical changes through which India has passed from the earliest days down to the beginning of the thirteenth century, and thence proceeds to sketch the conditions of society as revealed by literature and the monuments, the constitution and administration of the State, the chief religious rituals, the nature of the scientific knowledge possessed by the ancient Hindus, their systems of weights, measures, and coinage, their writing, and their achievements in architecture, sculpture, and painting.'
