Rawlinson, H.G.  Intercourse between India and the Western world: from the earliest times to the fall of Rome. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1926. 8vo (22 cm, 8.625"). Frontis., vi, [2], 196 pp.; 3 plts., fold. map.
$15.00

From the preface written by the author: "I have attempted, in this monograph, to furnish a succinct account of the intercourse between India and the Greco-Roman world from the earliest times to the fall of Rome. This subject has never, so far as I am aware, been dealt with as a whole in any English work. Yet it is replete with interest to the student of Hellenism in its wider and more neglected aspects, and to Orientalists, who depend largely upon references in Greek and Roman authors for information about many obscure points of early Indian History."
        This is the second edition.
        Provenance: From the library of Albert A. Howard.
