The publication introduces an annotated edition of two works by Matěj Václav Kramerius (1753-1808), most often referred to by Czech literary historians as "fictional travelogues". The two texts, Historické Vypsání Velikého Mogolského Císařství (Historical description of the Great Mughal Empire) and Druhý Díl Indie (Second Part of India), were first serialized between 1803-1804 in Kramerius' newspaper supplement Pražský Posel (The Prague Messenger) and published in book form shortly after. They constitute the first substantial treatise on India within Czech literary history. The texts drew largely from 17th century foreign travel literature and sought to inform the common reader about Indian history, form of government, religion, flora and fauna. This edition's text is accompanied by a factographic commentary, which attempts to identify all the toponyms used by the author, as well as historical events, wildlife and other cultural elements. In order to facilitate the ease of reading of the two-hundred-year-old Czech text, the edition provides a comparative dictionary and a list of toponyms, which presents each proper name both as written by Kramerius and in its modern Czech form. Additionally, the included extensive edition history follows the difficulties connected with editions of Czech texts during the early Czech National Revival.
