Francois Bernier and Thomas Fryer

Mon Jul 6 23:14:01 UTC 1998


In a journal called purusartha, edited by the EHESS (Paris),
I find inside issue Number 7, dated 1983,
on page 278 a bibliographic reference (attached to an article
by Sylvia Murr):

Bernier, F. Voyages de F. Bernier , contenant la description
des Etats du Grand Mogol, de l'Hindoustan, du Royaume
de Kachemire, etc.
(Amsterdam, P.Marret, 1699), 2 vol. Ed. moderne
par Fr. Bhattacharya (Paris, FAYARD, 1981)

I hope this helps
