Historic Lucknow, first published in 1939, is a collection of essays on the nawabs of Oudh, how Lucknow came into existence and descriptions of its myriad monuments, palaces and gardens, be it the Imambara, the Residency, the Walaiti Bagh or Begum Kothi.
Sidney Hay`s detailed, chronological narrative of the nawabs from Sa`adat Khan up to Wajid Ali Shah uplifts the book from being a mere historical chronicle. The idiosyncrasies of each ruler who played a significant role in their contribution – or lack of it – to Lucknow, the snippets of gossip and rumour surrounding them and quotes from various sources make this book fascinating. The author has also thoughtfully included a detailed description – along with attire, jewellery – of each ruler as depicted in their portraits. Through the life and times of the nawabs, readers will also get a glimpse of how the British gradually gained control over Lucknow.
The city`s monuments, tombs, bridges and shrines, many of which were mute spectators of the unfolding of the events of the Indian mutiny of 1857, are also featured in this book. Hay`s descriptions of the mutiny and its events are captivating. Anecdotes on the nawabs` extravagant dinners or animal fights at Musa Bagh, or his observations on the portraits in Taluqdars` Hall are both amusing and engaging.
About the Author
Sidney Hay was a famous historian and also authored books such as By Order of the Shah.
