Cosmo Publications is pleased to announce the publication of the second part of 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 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 press reviews included here.
A total of twenty-four volumes are now available.

‘We hope that the volumes on the “Rulers of India” series.. are carefully read by a large section of the public. We strongly recommend the book to all who wish to enlarge the area of their knowledge with reference to India’ – New York Herald

‘We have already expressed our sense of the value and timeliness of the series of Indian historical retrospect, under the editorship of Sir W. W. Hunter’ – The Literary World

The “Rulers of India” series, edited by Sir W. W. Hunter. is one of the very best of the serial collections which are now so popular. All the writers of these little volumes are well-known and acknowledged authorities on the subjects with which they deal. – Echo
