New Old Stock from Discontinued Book Shop 1 Copy Only Buy this with my other listing Orientations Magazine VOLUME 35 – NUMBER 6 Sep 2004 (Antique Games Edition) They are PERFECT TOGETHER! New but due to its age, there will be faint page yellowing and abrasion. Not for fussy buyers. It is not commonly known that several of the world`s most popular board games were conceived in the Indian subcontinent, including Ludo (or pachisi), Snakes and Ladders, and not least chess, the greatest and most universal board games of all. Gaming with dice and the playing of board games have had a major role in Indian culture since atleast the third millennium BCE. While many articles on this fascinating subject have been written over the last century, no single volume has appeared addressing the history of Indian games in their cultural and artistic aspects. This book, with eleven articles by leading authorities, offers an initial survey of the great tradional games of India. About the Author A lavishly illustrated survey of the games of India, many of which are popular today. Andrew Topsfield has contributed to The Art of Play: Board and Card Games of India as an editor. Andrew Topsfield is senior assistant keeper in the Department of Eastern Art at the Ashmolean Museum and a member of the Oriental Institute at the University of Oxford.
