Elphinstone s History of India is a faithful reprint of the eighth. Great care has been taken to preserve the original spelling of Hindu names as it was left hy author and editor respectively. A large number of printers errors have been rectified, and a very few passages in the text which were obscure have been put into clear English. The list of qualities in the chapter on Philosophy (p. 122), the incompleteness of which had, curiously enough, remained undetected for sixty-two years, has now been completed. The Publisher has to thank Sir George Birdwood for his kindness in supplying the omissions. January,
