New York:Asia Publishing House. (1966). (xvi)+184pp. Hardcover with dust jacket. Cloth binding is faded in places and title in gilt on spine is dulled. Internally, pages are clean, free of previous owners marks or signatures. The binding is tight and hinges intact. The dust jacket is still very good with light soiling and light wear to edges and folds.  *"This book breaks freah ground in the study of historiography pertaining to ancient India. The tacit assumption that ancient Indian historians had no idea of history, has prevented the modern historian of ancient India from appreciating the true import of their works.  He completely ignores the subjective element imbedded in these works and studies them in much the same way that a numismatist would view an ancient coin or an archaeologist would examine a piece of old excavated pottery.  Dr. Paathak avoids this fallacy that most modern historians are prone to and studies the ideas of history implicit in ancient Indian historical treatises."...dj
