Asar al-sanadid] Asar-oos-Sunadid: i.e. the - Ahmad Khan, Sir Sayyid - 1904. 
Cawnpore printed in the Nami Press. 1904 - "Footprints of the Princes" was the pioneering study documenting the Muslim monuments of Delhi first published in 1847. With text by the nineteenth-century Islamic modernist, Indian educator and politician, Sir Sayyid Ahmad Khan, and illustrated with lithographs after original sketches by the artist Mirza Shah Rukh Beg Musawwir, this work quickly established itself as the most authoritative work on the Islamic architecture of Delhi, and became the basis for all later studies. Garcin de Tassy was so impressed that he published a French translation in the Journal Asiatique as early as 1860, and Alexander Cunningham, first Director of the Archaeological Survey of India, also used this as source for his report on Delhi. A complete English translation was only published in 1978. Bound in later quarter leather. Pinholes throughout. pp., 4, 88, 108, , frontis, illustrated throughout. Text in Urdu.
