Cosmo Publications is pleased to announce the publication of this classic Series of Indian history. These books are authentic documents from the past that are as valid and as useful today as when they were written, or even more so. These are books that have come to acquire a stature which was not apparent when they were published. Edited by the leading Indologist of his time – W. W. Hunter – the titles in this series reflect some of the best biographies ever attempted. Mr. Hunter indeed made sure that the task of writing the individual title was entrusted to the most suitable person as is amply reflected by the choice of the authors for the purpose. That the titles are indeed classics is clearly demonstrated by some of the reviews we have included here

‘In “Clyde and Strathnairn”, a contribution to Sir William Hunter’s excellent “Rulers of India” series, Sir Owen Burne gives a lucid sketch of the military history of the Indian Mutiny and its suppressions by the two great soldiers who give their names to this book. The space is limited for so large a theme, but Sir Owen Burne skilfully adjusts his treatment to his limits, and rarely violates the conditions of proportion imposed upon him’. ‘Sir Owen Burne does not confine himself exclusively to the military narrative. He gives a brief sketch of the rise and progress of the Mutiny, and devotes a chapter to the Reconstruction which followed its suppression.’. ‘well written, well proportioned, and eminently worthy of the series to which it belongs.’—The Times.

‘Sir Owen Burne has written this book carefully, brightly, and with excellent judgment, and we in India cannot read such a book without feeling that he has powerfully aided the accomplished editor.’—Bombay Gazette.

‘Sir Owen Burne’s book on “Clyde and Strathnairn” is worthy to rank with the best in the admirable series to which it belongs.’—Manchester Examiner.
