About This Item

London: Hurst & Blackett, 1913. Hardcover. 8vo. Full tan calf with gilt spine panels, dentelles. viii, 307pp. Top edge gilt. Marbled endpapers. Very good. A bit scuffed at edges. First edition, handsomely bound by Riviere. Not really a travelogue, but -- well, let Fielding-Hall explain it: "It is of the humanity which India shares with the rest of the world, the hearts that beat always the same under the whatever skin, the ideals that can never be choked by no matter what customs or religions, that this book is concerned with."
