(VOLUME 1 ONLY) .************(Desc)*****Historical Relation Of The Island Ceylon published in London in 1681 is the best work written in Ceylon / Sri Lanka in English language and is widely known for Knox's accurate description of the social, economic and political conditions of the Kandyan Kingdom in the 17th century. The book was so popular on first publication that Knox Planned a Second edition. Knox obtained a copy of his 1681 edition interleaved with blank leaves, on this he wrote the additional material for the second edition. The works was completed in 1713 but public interest in the books of this kind had changed and Chiswell refused to publish it.****** In the 1890's Sir Augustus Franks presented a collection of books to the Christian library dep of ethnography to the British museum. While examining these books in 1925, a book was found loosely stitched and tied, it was the long lost second edition. Tisara Prakasakayo is happy to now present Knox's second edition to the reader for the first time, 309 years after the first. it is the first time that the material for the second edition is being printed.
