Cosmo Publications is pleased to announce the publication this Classic Series on 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 on the men who ruled India. Mr. Hunter indeed made sure that the task off 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 press review included here. A total of twenty-four volumes are now available. “An interesting and exceedingly readably volume work about an important epoch in English history in India, and has given us a pleasing insight. The ‘Ruler of India’ series, which he has initiated, thus makes a successful beginning in his hands”. THE SET INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING RULERS
