Paperback. 154 pages. Dimensions: 11.7in. x 8.3in. x 0.3in.The manuscript source for this translation of the memoirs of the Mughal emperor Jahangir (1569-1627) is the spurious Tarikh-i-Salim Shahi, produced around three years after its subjects death. Serving the East India Company from 1781 as a soldier and, following injury, as a translator, agent and judge-advocate-general, David Price (1762-1835) studied Persian and collected many manuscripts. After leaving India in 1805, he devoted his time to scholarship as a member of the Royal Asiatic Society and the Oriental Translation Fund, which awarded him its gold medal in 1830. In this work, first published in 1829, Price notes throughout where the source is illegible, problematic or incongruous. The translation is carefully made and provides an account of the reign and character of Jahangir which corresponds in places to the authentic memoirs, although containing several factual inaccuracies. Despite this, it remains a colourful reflection of Mughal historiography. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

About this title:

Synopsis:

The manuscript source for this translation of the memoirs of the Mughal emperor Jahangir (1569?1627) is the spurious Tarikh-i-Salim Shahi, produced around three years after its subject's death. Serving the East India Company from 1781 as a soldier and, following injury, as a translator, agent and judge-advocate-general, David Price (1762?1835) studied Persian and collected many manuscripts. After leaving India in 1805, he devoted his time to scholarship as a member of the Royal Asiatic Society and the Oriental Translation Fund, which awarded him its gold medal in 1830. In this work, first published in 1829, Price notes throughout where the source is illegible, problematic or incongruous. The translation is carefully made and provides an account of the reign and character of Jahangir which corresponds in places to the authentic memoirs, although containing several factual inaccuracies. Despite this, it remains a colourful reflection of Mughal historiography.

Book Description: This 1829 translation of what is now known to be a flawed account of incidents from the first fifteen years of the reign of the Mughal emperor Jahangir (1569?1627) offers a colourful, if not always factually accurate, description of the ruler's character, politics and actions.
