General & world history

This famous book is based upon author's personal observation and inquiry, during a residence of ten years in the country; and he inserted nothing in it but what, to the best of his belief, was correct as far as it goes. The translation of the history was carried out by a Nepalese national Shew Shunker Singh, the Mir Munshi attached to the then British Residency. He was assisted, when necessary, by Pandit Shri Gunanand, who was a native of Nepal, residing at Patan, and whose ancestors, for many gene-rations, had been the compilers of this history. The work translated was the vansavali or Genealogical History of Nepal, according to the Buddhist recession. The original manuscript was written in Parbatiya with an admixture of Sanskrit and Newari. The book is considered an authentic historical document and is widely referred to by scholars and visitors to the country alike.
