Book Description
About the Book
This book contains an excellent account of the history and architecture of Delhi. It will afford readers and visitors not only a clear guide to all that is seen in Delhi but also an intelligent record of the history of the place in all its various phases. Sir Hearn coined the phrase "Seven Cities of Delhi", popularising the famous drawing of the seven cities that accompanied the original text. Both the drawing and the notion of the seven cities of Delhi have survived to this day. The title "Seven Cities of Delhi" continues to catch the imagination of Delhiites, with its similarity to Rome, the eternal city with its seven hills.

About the Author
Gordon Risley Hearn, Sir CIE, DSO, (1871- 1953) was one of the most accomplished railway engineers in India where he served most of his career. He was commissioned into the Royal Engineers in 1890 and retired c1926. He wrote many books, as The seven cities of Delhi, Railway Engineer's Field Book ..., The Efflorescent History of Delhi etc.

THE arrangement of this book is the result of much consideration and of more than one alteration. As it stands, the book is divided into three parts. In the first, the situations of the seven cities, and of the principal monuments, are given. second part treats of archaeology and architecture. The third part gives the history of Delhi from the Mahomedan conquest to the present time.
