The edition (1893) and translation (1900) of Kalhaṇa’s Rājataraṅgiṇī remain Marc Aurel Stein’s most lasting contributions to the study of Sanskrit and premodern Indian history. While this work remains unsurpassed in modern scholarship, references in Stein’s private letters pointed to the existence of an updated and expanded version of the Rājataraṅgiṇī, illustrated by photographs of various locales mentioned in Kalhaṇa’s history. These revisions and additions, which Stein called the Illustrated Rājataraṅgiṇī in correspondence, were long considered lost, however this volume presents Marc Aurel Stein’s Illustrated Rājataraṅgiṇī, edited from manuscripts kept in Oxford’s Bodleian Library. Appearing in print for the first time, the Illustrated Rājataraṅgiṇī collects Stein’s additions and corrections to his text and translation of Kalhaṇa’s Rājataraṅgiṇī. These notes are illustrated photographs of important sites in the Kashmir Valley taken by Stein on his last tour of the Valley in 1940. This collection of photographs has been reassembled from collections in Oxford and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest. The volume is completed with reprints of four important papers on the Sanskrit text Rājataraṅgiṇī by Eugen Hultzsch. These papers served as catalysts for Stein to rethink important textual variants in the Rājataraṅgiṇī. [Verlagsinformation]
