This volume joins together in English for the first time the two editions of Sir Sayyid Ahmed Khan’s classic account of the monuments and environs of precolonial Delhi. Translator Rana Safvi’s annotations and appendices trace the historical development of the text between 1847 and 1854, before the cataclysmic events of 1857 changed Delhi forever. The volume includes sketches from the original Urdu edition. It is a valuable resource for urban historians and scholars of Delhi’s monumental history.
