This book is a seminal description of the history of Nepal, much sought after and unobtainable for a very long time. Written almost two centuries ago, it is a methodical, objective perspective of the history of Nepal and its people. This work is of great value to the scholar, since it is impossible to read works of later historians without a constant reference to their predecessors. Apart from this, An Account of the Kingdom of Nepal also contains information which has still not been fully exploited by modern scholars.
