History of Bengali Literature (An Old and Rare Book)

The author's terminus ad quem is 1941, the year of Rabindranath Tagore's death.

About the Author

Dr. Sukumar Sen, the author of the book, has received several honours and recognition for his outstanding researches on the Bengali language and literature. The Fellowship of the Sahitya Akademi, the nation's highest literary Honour, was conferred on his in 1973.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)
Hithesh, USA

Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
