Preface

The want of a connected History of the province of Gujarat having been greatly felt so far back as the year 1850, the Gujarat Vernacular Society, then only recently started under the fostering care of the lamented Mr. A. K. Forbes, advertised that a prize would be awarded for such a history written in. the vernacular. The present writer was at that time one of the senior pupils in the Government English School, and depending mainly on Bird's Translation of the Mirat-i-Ahmadi and Grant Duffs History of the Marathas, he set himself to compile a brief compendium of the History of Gujarat. The book was approved of by the Society, and the prize was duly awarded. Mr. Forbes, in his report of the Society for 1850, wrote as follows :-

"While on this subject, I may add that I have in my possession a compilation by Edalji Dosdbhai, written in very good Gujarati, and giving a useful summary of the History of the province. This may be published immediately, and may be a very good school-book".

Doctor Seaward, in the report of the following year, stated :-

"The second publication is the History of Gujarat by Edalji Dosabhai. It is essentially a school-book and a very useful one too, and is now used in all the Vernacular schools of the city. Two hundred copies were published, of which very few remain".

The author having soon afterwards obtained service under Government, he could not command the leisure necessary for revising and republishing the work. Portions of it, however, were admitted into several of the earlier educational text books, and Mr. Bajibhai Amichand, the proprietor of one of the vernacular presses at Ahmadabad, published a third edition on his own responsibility.

On his retirement from Government service, the compiler became desirous- of re-issuing the took. Since its first publication, however, in 1850, a vast amount of additional information has become available from the Ras Mala, a storehouse of Gujarati folk-lore, and from the researches of Dr. Buhler and other eminent scholars. The author also thought it desirable to continue the History to the present time, placing under contribution for this purpose several of the volumes of the Bombay Gazetteer and *he official Administration Reports. In the home that such a connected History from the earliest to the lates tires may prove useful not only to students in Gujarat itself but to all who take an interest in the country, the author, acting on the advice of several of his friends, undertook to compile the work in English. He was greatly encouraged in his endeavours by the Rev. George, P. Taylor, and B.D. of the Irish Presbyterian Mission, author of the Student's Gujarati Grammar. With a view-to ensure correct English idiom and general accuracy, this gentleman very kindly undertook to revise the manuscript, and he further supplied several books on loan from his valuable library. Indeed it is owing largely to his cordial assistance and encouragement that the work has now been brought to completion, and the author takes the present opportunity of expressing his grateful acknowledgments to his kind and esteemed friend. He is also under deep obligation to Mr. E. Giles, M.A. Educational Inspector, N.D., for his kindness in going through the whole of the manuscript and for many useful suggestions and corrections. - His warm interest in the work has greatly encouraged the author to proceed with its publication.
