680 g.; VIII, 232 pages, 20 pages following advertising further volumes (nearly 60) in the series The History of Civilisation, preface by author and index. Navy blue coloured boards with gilt illustration embossed to the front panel and gilt titles to the backstrip. Bumping and rubbing to the head and to the heel of the backstrip and rubbing to the book corners and bumping to the lower book corners. A few light marks to the panels. There has been partial adhesion of the book's dustwrapper to the backstrip. The piece measures 3.5 " x 0.75 ". Browning and foxing to the text block edges. Browning and handling marks to the endpapers. The major fault has been a previous owner had obviously covered the dustwrapper and had placed tape to keep the cover secure, the remains of that tape can be seen to both the top and bottom edges of the endpapers. The top right-hand corner of the free front end paper has been clipped. The front hinge has cracked between the free front end paper and title page. Browning throughout the text and foxing is prevalent as well. A look at Indian poetry from the Heroic Age, as well as a look at the society, religion and governmental forces of that time as well. As the author states in his preface, page VII, "... in the following pages an attempt has been made to study the Sanskrit heroic poems as a parallel to similar poems of European lands. This involves an examination of the origin and development of these poems, including an investigation of the society to which they relate.".
