      The Sun and the Serpent

      A Contribution to the History of Serpent-Worship

      by Charles Frederick Oldham

      Excerpt


      Residence in India, and an intimate acquaint ance with the people, afforded many facilities. In rendering Indian and other names the popular forms of spelling have been adopted. The author takes this opportunity to offer his thanks to those friends who have helped him with information or otherwise, especially to Professor A. H. Sayce, whose advice, most kindly given, has saved him from several pitfalls.

      Most of the illustrations are from photographs taken by the author.
