A reprint of 'Gazetteer of the Province of Oudh' in 3 vols. revivifies the Province of Oudh, through a detailed study of the various aspects of this colourful Province.
The Province of Oudh, which is the latest annexed of the Kingdoms of India forms the centre of the vast plain which has been for centuries the peculiar site of Hindu civilisation, and is distinguished by the name of Hindustan proper from those other parts of the Indian continent where the colonization of the old Aryan conquerors has been less complete. Stretching from the Ganges to the hills, and about equidistant from Delhi on the one side and the extreme east of Bihar on the other, it divides this region into nearly two even parts.
The work in 3 vols. explores the varied dimensions such as the natural features, agriculture and commerce, the people, administrative features and history of all the districts and towns of the Oudh in an alphabetical roder.
Being an enriching and informative account of the Province, it deserves the attention of all interested in the subject.
