The Indian Historical Quarterly (In 39 Volumes)

Narendra Nath Law (Editor)
Synopsis The establishment of the Asiatic Society by Sir William Jones in the eighteenth century, the product of the early Europeans in India, to acquire and disseminate knowledge of Indian history, customs and manners of the Indian people left a blazing trail through its journals and proceedings. The coming centuries witnessed several savants delving deep in the subject and as a result, besides many books, several articles were published in the ever increasing journals and periodicals. To wit the untiring efforts of Cunningham, Max Muller, Stein, Prircep and others can be cited. Thus by the early twentieth century books journals and periodicals had become so vast that it became a Herculean task for the scholars and researchers to find in one place all relevant materials required for their subject of research, particularly about Indian history and culture. They had to wade through an ocean of publications. To alleviate the distress of these knowledge craving scholars Dr. Narendra Nath Law started a Quarterly The Indian Historical Quarterly. The principal aim of this quarterly was to publish articles, notices, etc. dealing with Indian history and civilization. The first issue of the journal appeared in 1925 and for nearly four decades, it served the savants, scholars and students of Indian history becoming an indispensable tools in their research. This mine was unfortunately abandoned without being fully exploited with the publication of two issues in 1963. The Quarterly dealt mainly with Archaeology, Art and Architecture, Religion and Philosophy, Epics and Puranas, Epigraphy and Numismatics, Grammar and Linguistics, History of India and the world. Law, Polity and Administration, Literature, Science, Social and Economic Institutions and so on. In short it is a journal which no student of Indology can afford to miss.
