First edition, folio, pp.xxxix, 352, 152 pages of maps and illustrations, 2 overlays and 3 folding charts in rear pocket. The Association for Asian Studies, Reference Series No.2. A very good copy in original cloth.

An indispensible reference to the history of the subcontinent from prehistoric times to the present. The many maps and other illustrations give a clear overview of such disparate topics as Harappan civilization and culture, the status, age and nature of boundary disputes, and even a geographical background to fiction set in South Asia. This very large atlas (41 x 33 cm) weighs 4 kg before packing. Shipping cost quoted on request.
