Illustrations by Sudhakar Khasgiwale with a Foreword by Dr. Rajendra Prasad. All of the lamps described in this book are of brass; those made of other material have been mentioned accordingly. If many lamps of Nepalese origin are included in the book it is for the reason which will be readily appreciated, that Indian and Nepalese craftsmen have been inspired by the same models and swayed by the same creative impulse.
