9780195631418: Transport and Communications in India Prior to Steam Locomotion: Volume I: Land Transport (French Studies on South Asian Culture and Society)

This volume (the first of two) is devoted to the origins, development, and operation of land transport. Deloche first traces the history of ancient roads across the subcontinent from the Himalayas down to South India, and then looks at all aspects of road construction and examines various means of transport. Detailed descriptions are based on data drawn from a large number of varied sources, covering a time period from the early Vedic to the nineteenth century. The text is effectively illustrated with clear, simple and attractive line drawings.
