This book is an account of two well known travellers John Thavenot, a Frenchman, and Francesco Gemelli Careri, an Italian. It deals with the Indian part of their travels. Both came to India during the time of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. Thevenot visited India between 1666 and 1667 and Careri in 1695. Much in the manner of travelogues written by European travellers in that century, these narratives are very observant, and narrate everything they observed and experienced whilst they were here. The political state of the country, the description of the intrigues in the Mughal courts, the description of wars and feuds, trade and commerce, local traditions, all find mention in this book. Blessed with an unusually retentive power, they wielded a facile pen and commanded a charming style.
About the Author
Jean de Thevenot (1633-67) during his brief life of 34 years had visited more countries of Europe, Asia, and Africa than many of his contemporaries.
Giovanni Francesco Gemelli Careri (1651-1725) was seventeenth century Italian adventurer and traveller. His travels may have inspired Around the World in 80 days.
Surendranath Sen (1890-1959) initially started teaching at the University of Calcutta. In 1939 he shifted to the National Archives of India and worked there till 1949. In 1949 he went back to teaching and joined University of Delhi as a professor.
