This volume, deals with inscriptions of more than six centuries of Muslim rule in Bengal (ad 1233-1855). The author Shamsud-din Ahmed has systematically organized the mass of material scattered over several books and scholarly journals in this volume. Divided into five chapters, he has deciphered and edited all available epigraphic records of the Muslim rulers of Bengal.
The epigraphic records of the pre-Suri period are distinguished by their comparative documentary value from those of the succeeding periods. The inscriptions of the Ilyas Shahi, Habshi and Husain Shahi Sultans are replete with references to the legal status of the ruler, the official titles of the provincial governor and the nomenclature of the administrative units into which the kingdom of Bengal might have been divided. Shamsud-din Ahmed has presented about 200 inscriptions with painstaking notes on the political history and geography of the region. The bibliographical table at the beginning and the list of inscriptions at the end add to the value of the book.
