This volume is a revision of those parts of Mr. Atkinso's Himalayan Gazetteer which refer to the Garhwal district. The sources of my information have been chiefly that work and Mr. Pauw's Settlement report, supplemented to a small extent by personal enquiries.

This Gazetteer gives all-round important information relating to British Garhwal. An excusive chapter has also been devoted to the Tehri State. Useful data have been added in the appendices.
