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 VI, Part 1 of From the First European Settlements to the Founding of the English East India Company, by British scholar SIR WILLIAM WILSON HUNTER (1840-1900), features entertaining and enlightening treatments of: - the closing of the old trade paths - the quest for India by sea - the struggle between Christendom and Islam for the Indian seas - the Portuguese policy in the East - England's attempts to reach India in the 16th century - the constitution of the first English East Indian Company - and more. This beautiful replica of the 1906 first edition includes all the original illustrations.
