Besides a thorough general revision, this Edition has much addi tional information in the Introduction as to the people Of India. Short accounts are given of the Mohammedan, Hindu, and Buddhist religions, supplemented by illustrations of Buddha and the chief Hindu gods Indian architecture, arts, and irrigation are described and a short pre'cis given Of the chief events Of the Mutiny, with a map showing the distribution of British and Native troops in May 185 7. But for the faulty situation Of the British troops, the Mutiny would never have become serious yet in no previous account has a map been issued to illustrate this vital point. The chronology has been entirely rewritten; and maps of rainfall, temperature, and land products have been added.
