"A white jewel enclosed in a frame of dark cypresses, the Taj Mahal seems to float over the hot, flat Indian plain. Its distinctive silhouette, mirrored in the placid surface of a long reflecting pool, is instantly identifiable, for the shimmering tomb is one of the most frequently photographed structures in the world. ... Some 120 illustrations - nearly one half in full color - supplement this compelling history of the Mogul dynasty. Manuscript illuminations, objets d'art, maps, dynasty charts, and modern photographs taken by the author complement the text. " Scarce, Out Of Print, Book.: 9 x 11.5 in.: 172 pages
