Full text of "Transactions of the Bombay Geographical Society ..."

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

PREFACE. 



In the preface to the Catalogue of the Library of jbhe Society, prepared 
and published in 1862, it was stated a General Index to the Contents 
of the first Fifteen Volumes of the Society's Transactions, combined 
with a Catalogue of its Maps and Charts, would be presented in due 
course. 

Owing to circumstances inseparable from a prolonged residence in 
India, part of this promise only was fulfilled by the completion of the 
MS. Catalogue of Maps and Charts. 

The want of an Index to the Society's Transactions had long been 
felt, — the more so from the circumstance th^ the majority of the 
earlier volumes contained «ach little more than a table of contents, 
such as would afford but little assistance for the purpose of reference. 
A copious Index, however, was given with eadi volume from 1858, 
while advantage was taken of spare moments to prepare for the General 
Index. 

In March 1865 the Society thankfully accepted the very liberal offer 
of Bhugwandass Purshotumdass, Esq., Justice of the Peace, Bombay, 
and a member of the Society, to prepare and publish, at his expense, 
the volume now issued. 

Mr Balvant Crishnar^o POekar, the assiduous and intelligent clerk 
to the Society, assisted me in the compilation of the Catalogues, while 
the professional aid of a gentleman in Edinburgh was availed of to 
complete the volume.

DIRECTIONS -FOR CONSULTING THE INDEX. 



An asterisk (*) prefixed to certain articles and figures — (thus, *Aden, the Gulf of, 
xvi. 31) — vindicates that the references are to the Society's Proceedings, which 
are to be found at the beginning of each volume, separately paged in Roman 
numerals. 

Volumes II. and IV. of the Transactiam having, the one four and the other two 
separate pagings, references to the second series of each volume are marked 
with an asterisk, (thus, ii. 64* ;) to the third, with an obelisk, (thus, ii. 5f ;) 
and to the fourth, with a double dagger, (thus, ii. 27t.) 

The great bulk of the information contained in the Transactions being of a geo- 
graphical nature, it will chiefly be found under the name of the country, 
people, river, mountain, district, or town regarding which information may 
be sought. 

In order to facilitate reference for scientific and other purposes, the leading fea- 
tures of the various countries, districts, and towns described in the Transac- 
tions have been classified under the following heads : — Commerce, Ethno- 

OBAPHY, QEOLOaT, LANGUAGES, METEOROLOGY, NATURAL HiSTORY, PHILOLOGY, 

Religion ; while, still further to assist this, on the following page will be found 
a Synoptical View of all the information of a more strictly scientific and 
generally interesting nature contMned in the TransactionSy with the page of 
the Index on which it occurs. 

In addition to the ordinary arrangement under the names of places, &c., the great 
mass of the more important papers will be found grouped under the follow- 
ing heads -.—Memoirs, Memorandums, Narratives, Notes, Observations, 
Remarks, Reports, Surveys.
