In the field of medieval Indian historiography, an eight-volume magnum opus, history of India as Told by Its Own Historians, by Sir Henry Myers Elliot (1808-53) and the editor-compiler of his posthumous papers, John Dowson (1820-81), was published from London between 1867 and 1877. These landmark volumes continue to retain their popularity even nearly hundred and fifty years later, and scholars still learn from and conduct their research on the basis of tis work. However, an enterprise of this scale and magnitude was bound to suffer from some serious shortcomings.


An eminent Indian scholar, S.H. Hodivala undertook the daunting task of annotating Elliot and Downson’s volumes and worked through all the new material, selecting or criticizing and adding his own suggestions where previous comments did not exist or appeared unsuitable. The first volume of Hodivala’s annotated Studies, was published in 1939, while the second was published posthumously in 1957.
