About This Item

William Robertson. An Historical Disquisition Concerning the Knowledge Which the Ancients had of India; and the Progress of Trade with that Country Prior to the Discovery of the Passage to it by the Cape of Good Hope. With an Appendix Containing Observations on the Civil Policy – the Laws and Judicial Proceedings – the Arts – the Sciences – and Religious Institutions of the Indians.

Illustrated with 2 folding maps. 4to. Rebound in modern leather-backed boards. London, Printed for A. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1791. First Edition.

William Robertson was an eminent Scottish historian. "Having published a highly influential History of Scotland; established his reputation with his life of Charles V; and expanded his fame with his History of America . . . Robertson turned his attention to India. The Disquisition falls into two main parts: the first two-thirds is a narrative of the commercial contacts India had with the outside world from ancient times to the sixteenth century; the remainder is a long appendix describing Indian culture. . ." (ODNB) A very nice copy with broad margins.
