It was the original intention to produce this work on INDIAN ARCHITECTURE in one volume, and the letterpress with the material as a whole was prepared accordingly. In the course of publication however. it was found expedient to modify this plan, and to bring the work out not only in two separate volumes but in the form of two independent books. The first of these confines itself to the early and Brahmanical aspect of the subject, and is therefore entitled INDIAN ARCHITECTURE, BUDDHIST AND HINDU, while the second deals with the development of Moslem architecture in India up to modem times, and is entitled INDIAN ARCHITECTURE, THE ISLAMIC PERIOD. It is believed that the issue of the work in this manner will enable it to be more conveniently studied, andhandled more easily than if it were produced in one rather bulky volume.
