Item Description: Oxford: University Press, Karachi, 1978. 1. Auflage dieser Ausgabe. ISBN 0195772377 // Englisches Produkt in englischer Sprache // First Edition Thus: Oxford in Asia Historical Reprints // In 1838 a 21,000 strong British Indian army moved into Afghanistan with the intention of deposing the undoubtedly able and popular Dost Mohammed Khan of Kabul and replacing him by the worthless and unpopular Shah Shuja, an exile of thirty years standing. This decision resulted from a harmful exaggeration of the Russian involvement in Persia which was then considered a direct threat to British India and from Dost Mohammed Khan's objection to outside interference in Afghan affairs which was mistakenly considered as a pro-Russian stance. This was the start of the First Afghan war which resulted in a disaster such as had never previously befallen a British Indian Army. The author, Mohan Lal, fluent in English, Hindi and Persian, was in the service of the Government of India and was highly regarded by the British, Afghans and Persians for his diplomatic ability and his talent for delicate negotiations. This account is the most important detailed and valid appraisal of the events that took place.

Item Description: Longman, Brown, Green, And Longmans, London, 1846. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Two volumes octavo. This set is finely bound as an Eton Leaving present - a title often encountered thus. Near contemporary full crimson polished calf with spines fully gilt in four compartments between raised bands; twin green morocco labels; double gilt fillet to boards with star in each corner; edges of boards gilt; marbled edges and endpapers. xviii, (2), 399; vii, (2), 498pp., complete with 19 tinted lithograph plates. The joints and edges are a little scuffed and rubbed and there is a gouge mark on the lower board of the second volume. There is some foxing - this is largely confined to the portrait of Queen Victoria and that of Quazi(judge) Mohammed Hussan khan. Mohan Lal Kashmiri (1812- 1877) was Alexander Burnes' invaluable munshi (secretary) and closest advisor.His father had been munshi on the Elphinstone Mission to Afghanistan. Lal was fluent in English, Urdu, Kashmri and Persian. He had accompanied Burnes on his mission to Bukhara in 1832 and had acted as an " intelligencer " for Wade in Kandahar. The work we offer is one of the most important sources for life of the Amir and the causes and aftermath of the First Anglo-Afghan War written by a man who was described by Major MacGregor, Political Agent thus: " A more intelligent person I have never met with. " Mohan Lal's account of the dreadful death of Burnes is probably " the most credible and certainly the most moving." (Dalrymple, " Return Of A King" p.304.) The subject of this biography, Dost Mohammad Khan (1792-1863), was the 18th son of Payindah Khan and a low-status Qizilbash wife. His rise to power was initially brought about by his eldest brother and then by his own ruthlessness and cunning. In 1835 he declared a jihad against the Sikhs and had himself formally declared Amir. Burnes made considerable efforts to convince his masters that the British should support the Amir but they continued to see him as an enemy of British interests. After receiving the Russian envoy, Ivan Vitkevitch, in 1838, Lord Auckland decided to replace the Barakzais Amir with his Sadozai arch-rival, Shah Shuja. After the British took Kabul, he spent eighteen months on the run before surrendering to Sir William Macnaghten on 4 November 1840. He was exiled to India and released after the assassination of Shah Shuja and the subsequent withdrawal of British and Indian troops in 1842. Over the next twenty-one years he enlarged his Afghan dominions to the current borders of the country and died shortly after conquering Herat in 1863. Bookseller Inventory # 010414

Item Description: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans. London. 1846, 1846. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION. 2 VOLUMES. 8vo. (9.1 x 6 inches). 19 lithographic portraits, printed on India paper and mounted. Publisher's forest green fine combed cloth, title gilt to spines, blind panelling and central lozenge to the boards, mid-cream surface-paper endpapers. Very slightly rubbed, some off-setting from the plates, but overall a superb set in the original cloth. A remarkably well-preserved set of this highly desirable work. ----- Perhaps the key source for political and diplomatic background to the First Afghan War. Mohan Lal was "Bokhara"; Burnes's most important intelligence operative, travelling extensively in Persia and Afghanistan and running a string of agents for the British. In 1841, as the situation in Kabul became critical, Lal tried to warn Burnes of the fact that he was the focus of rising discontent, but the Englishman foolishly believed that he would be able to talk his way out of the situation. Lal escaped the ensuing bloodbath, continuing to supply information from the Afghan capital. In 1844 he visited Scotland to return some papers to the Burnes family, the Montrose Review describing him then in glowing, if condescending, terms; "He is a very handsome man, of 28 years; and, when arrayed in the costly and gorgeous costume of his country, affords a favourable specimen of the Asiatic. But this is the least of his merits: his countenance beams with intelligence, and his intercourse with Europeans has enabled him to adapt himself, with perfect tact, to all their habits and modes of thinking, so that he can sustain with ease and propriety his part in any general conversation. We understand he has been urgently recalled to London ". He remained in London for some time, the present work being written there and dedicated with permission to Queen Victoria, but he never received the recognition from the British government that he felt he deserved. As a result of his service in Muslim countries, he had been excommunicated by the Kashmiri Pandit community, eventually converting to Islam, he died an isolated and embittered man in Delhi in 1877.
