Milestones in Gujarati Literature by Krishnalal Jhaveri is an exhaustive study of the origin and growth of Gujarati literature. It was not until European scholars made an attempt to write the history of Sanskrit literature, the treasures of vernacular literature received scant attention. This book written in 1914 and revised in 1938 covers five and a half centuries of Gujarati literature and ends in the period when the Gujarati writers were drawn to Western literary style. Gujarati literature of this period is a pale copy of Sanskrit literature. Though Mohammedans ruled in Gujarat, Arabic and Persian influence is rare. There is also no evidence of prose and they were following the examples set by the Sanskrit masters who even wrote their legal documents, maths handbooks, etc., in verse. The volume also covers the indigenous literature of Kathiawad and the folk literature of Gujarat.
