About This Item

London: Edward Arnold & Co., 1953. 1st edition. Hardcover. black-and-white photographs. pp. 176.,8vo,,,An account of the British novelist's six months' employment as the temporary private secretary to the Maharajah of the Indian State of Devi. The book, based largely on letters and diaries which Forster wrote at the time, describes 'his experiences in a world where the fantastic would keep breaking in on everyday life. He found himself clerk of the works to a partly built New Palace, he was subjected to an Official Insult, and he must be one of the very few Europeans who have taken part in the eight-day festival of Gokul Ashtami'.

Very good condition in original dust jacket (now price-clipped) with chipping to edges & light soiling; else good condition.
