The present work elucidates an ancient text and department of historical geography which will prove of some retrospective value for the study of historic, linguistic ethnologic and geographic aspects of the countries it deals with. Mindful, moreover of the maximum that geography is the eye of history and vice versa, as Carlyle has somewhere pointed out, that history should always go hand in hand with geography, not a few sidelights, often from hitherto unpublished and even unknown sources have been supplied to obscure periods of the countries treated, in so far as fell within the scope of the present work. Hence it is hoped that on this ground alone the study of the Ptolemaic Geography of Further India will become indispensable to orientalists. Though volume is mainly devoted to Further India and the Indo-Malay Archipelago, albeit the Tables cover a far wider field including China and Central Asia.
