The fifteen papers collected in this volume are related to the authors investigations into the history of astronomical instruments in India. The history of astronomical instrumentation in India is dominated by two mutually contradictory - yut complimentary - currents: on the one hand the resilience of certain archaic instruments that held sway for long even after they had become obsolete; on the other, Indian astronomers receptivity to exotic instruments from other cultures. Hence the title of the volume: The Archaic and the Exotic.
