A History of Jaipur (c. 1503-1938)

Jadunath Sarkar (Author) Raghubir Sinh (Editor) Raghubir Sinh (Introduction)

Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II, the last ruler of the erstwhile Jaipur State, commissioned a history of his dynasty and the state. Sir Jadunath Sarkar, the most eminent Indian historian of the time. agreed to take up the task, and completed the manuscript in 1939-40.

Rajput sensititvity towards incidents depicting Mughal-Rajput relations, and other obstacles, prevented over the decades by the Sawai Man Singh II Museum at the City Palace, Jaipur. It is now close to forty-five years since Jadunath Sarkar completed his manusript.

Shri Raghubir Sinh, a students of Sri Jadunath's and a historian in his own right, was entrusted with the editing an I updatting of the original manuscript. The result is a doubly valuable work of reference, based on material from the ancient archives of the Kachhawa House of Jaipur, preserved almost intrct for three and a half centuries. In Sir Jadunath's words, "the historian who has such a rich variety and profusion of the pure rae materials of his craft at his command, may well congratulate himself on holding a position unmatched elsewhere in the realm of Indian histroiography.
