Legendary History of Burma and Arakan free pdf Excerpt from Legendary History of Burma and Arakan The history of the Burman and Talaing countries has been already narrated by several writers. Crawfurd and Burney were the first to bring before European readers the annals of the Burmese, but these writers only incidentally deal with their neighbours the Talaings, and there are great discrepancies in the chronological tables furnished by each of them. Next Dr. Mason, in his valuable compendium of everything relating to Burma, has given two abstracts, one of Talaing, the other of Burmese history. Sir Arthur Phayre, to whom British Burma owes so much, has published, in the journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, two valuable essays on the "History of the Burma Race" and on the "History of Pegu." There are besides slight historical sketches in other works such as those in Father Sangermano's Burmese Empire and Yule's Embassy to the Court of Ava. But there is no short history embracing in one connected series a general and comprehensive view of the events happening contemporaneously within the area of what was known before the English occupation of Pegu as the "Burman Empire."' Dr. Masons dates are often confused and his facts incorrect in the earlier parts of the history. Sir Arthur Phayre's interesting essays are incomplete and, moreover, treat of Arakanese, Burmese, and Talaing history separately in scattered numbers of a scientific journal not generally accessible. In framing the following slight sketch, while advantage has been taken of the labours of all the above authors, and the opinions of Sir Arthur Phayre especially have been given their due weight, the actual facts have been taken from the existing Talaing and Burmese histories, and the dates obtained by checking one with the other.
