Bibliography on Indian Buddhist Art and Archaeology — General and Classified under Geographical Sites
The bibliography includes 4081 entries, covering published materials in English and French languages over the last two centuries. It is divided into two parts. The first part contains 2410 entries dealing with Indian Buddhist art and archaeology and Indian art in general, history, religion, some Buddhist sites outside present India — with special attention given to Pakistan —, etc.
Entries in the second part are exclusively devoted to Indian Buddhist sites. There are 57 sites; each one is individually studied.
The book gives a representative overview of what has been researched and accomplished in the field of Indian Buddhist Art and Archaeology since Wilkins's article on Bodh-Gaya in 1788 or Thomas Daniel's first illustration on the Kanheri caves in 1798.
