Opis: Tales of King Vikrama (Classic Reprint) - Kincaid C. A.

Excerpt from Tales of King Vikrama
It is stated in the introduction to the Marathi version of the Vetal Panchvishi that the book was translated into Hindi from Sanskrit, when the Marquis of Wellesley was Governor-General of India, by one Lalulal. In 1830 A.D. Mr. Sadashiv Chatre made a Marathi translation. My friend Mr. Healy of the Bombay District Police first brought the Marathi version to my notice. I was then unaware that there was any other. I read it through and was so pleased with it that I decided to translate it for the benefit of my own children. After I had finished my translation, I learnt for the first time that Sir Richard Burton had rendered the Hindi version into English. Unwilling to enter into competition with so pre-eminent a scholar, I obtained Burton's book (Vikrama and the Vampire) and examined it carefully. I found, however, that the Hindi version either differed so widely from the Marathi version or that Burton had expanded it so much that there was very little resemblance between his translation and mine. Moreover he translated only eleven stories, whereas I have rendered into English all the twenty-five.
I have, therefore, decided to publish my version in the hope of affording Indian school children a pleasant English reading book on familiar and well beloved themes, and also in the hope of enabling English children to read the tales which are told year in year out in the Deccan villages.
