Mughal Weapons in the Babur-Nama Rs.2,500.00/-


This book is profusely illustrated with more that three hundred line drawings, fifty black and white photographs and twenty color photos all based on the National Museum Manuscript.

Babur-Nama, the autobiography of Babur, the founder of Mughal rule in India, has been universally acclaimed as on e of the twenty best books ever written in the history of manking. The original Turkish manuscript written in Babur's own hand, no longer exists. It was translated into Persian by Abd-ur Rahim Khankhana at the instance of Akbar and was later illustrated by all the leading painters of the Mughal court. Of the several manuscripts of the Babur-nama illustrated at Akbar's court, only five are known two survive today. These are present in the British Museum, London; the Victoria and Alvert Museum, London; the Louvre, Paris, the State Museum of oriental culture. Moscow and the national Museum New Delhi. The National Copy Contains 145 paintings of which 54 bear the names of 40 artists. It was completed in 1598 A.D.

The Manuscript is indeed very rare and the attempt of Dr. G.N. Pant the renewed Scholar of Indian arms and armour is still rare. Dr. Pant has successfully tried to take out all variants of early mughal weapons as depicted therein, and corroborate them with existing examples and thus present a very comprehensive picture.

The Book is the product of decades of dedicated study, meticulous research and vast experience and is ordained to prove a landmark in the armeology of India.
