The Mogul emperors of Hindustan, A.D. 1389- A.D. 1707 (1895)
A COLLECTION of miniatures of the Mogul emperors, some of which are copied in this book, came into my hands many months ago. The accounts of these unfamiHar personages which are given in the ordinary books of reference I found to be inadequate and frequently incorrect. Accordingly, I devoted
the spare hours of a long and harassing winter to reading the original memoirs of the native historians of India and the accounts of early ambassadors and travellers to the court of the Great Moguls. A few of these I wrote out in brief, and they were printed in various periodicals. I have been asked to reprint them in a more complete form, which I am very glad to do, as I know of no one volume which contains the information here collected.
