Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Jahangir, fourth Moghul emperor of India (r. 1605-1627), kept a personal record of his reign. While battles, intrigues, etc., form a major portion of the work, Jahangir also recorded his fascination with the natural history, customs, and peoples of India. The book was produced under the auspices of the Freer Gallery of Art and the Sackler Gallery, an arrangement that allowed the publisher to supplement the text with approximately 100 illustrations of miniature paintings, objects d'art, and photographs of sites noted in the text. Unfortunately, one quarter of the miniature painting reproductions are black and white, and many are reduced to such a small size that details are difficult to perceive. Still, the work is a basic text for the study of the period, and libraries collecting in this area that don't have a copy will want this handsome edition.ADonald Johnson, Univ. of Minnesota Lib., Minneapolis

Format: Hardcover
I would recommend this book for serious folks interested in the art of Mogul Miniatures. Jahangir was a very special king and this book sheds light on the magic of the time period. It is a big and physically heavy book but such a joy to read. You can glimpse into the interests and lives of the royality and experience their lives in detail. The authors have gone into alot of research and there are many descriptions to dates, calendar, language and art. The book itself is a work of art. The reproductions of the miniature paintings, including many portraits of the royal court, are excellent. It is about time that art such as this is understood, recognized and appreciated. This book leads the way.
