The author has got the contributon for the then medical observations, the account of the Hindoo Astronomy, the Trigonometrical surveys and the navigation of The Indian Seas. The author had commenced the general account of the grand Natural Features of India, leaving to his scientific coadjutors the task of illustrating them in detail. He had exhibited the splendid series of discovery and triumph by which the Portuguese achieved the Maritime Passage to India, and established their sway over a great extent of its shores and also the the early Voyages and Settlements of the English.

The historical portion of the work concludes with a description of the Present State of British India.

These volumes would be useful for the Historians and the Researchers to compare the present India with its Past.
