A new edition has been recently prepared by me, in which these histories have been brought down to date.The present work practically completes the biographies of the families of note in the Province. It covers the Dehli, Jalandhar, Peshawar and Derajat Divisions, and includes short notices of the Ruling Chiefs.I was asked to write a business-like book of reference for District and Administrative Officers, studying brevity, and eschewing minute detail. These instructions I have obeyed at the sacrifice of much interesting matter which came under my hand. The book will not attract the general reader- but it will probably be found useful as one of reference, and ever endeavour has been made to secure an accurate record of modern facts affecting the families. The histories were reviewed in type by the Honorable the Lieutenant-Governor, and by the various District Officers of the Province.I have great pleasure in making my acknowledgments to the friends who assisted me in the preparation of this work. It had been, in the first instance, entrusted to Colonel C. H. T. Marshall, who collected a large amount of material before his transfer to Hyderabad.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
