MAURICE, Thomas.
The History of Hindostan; its Arts & its Sciences.

Maurice published numerous works on the religion and history of India. After completing his seven-volume Indian Antiquities, Maurice traced Indian history back to its classical origins. Volume I of his history of Hindostan is almost exclusively devoted to the astronomical systems of the Greeks, Indians, Chaldeans, Egyptians &c. The second volume deals with the Hindu religion and the classical history of India prior to 324 B.C. Most of the plates depict Indian deities.
