Book Condition: Very Good


Hardcover in publisher's original pictorial cloth covered boards, previous owners notes and illustration on Hindu architecture written/drawn neatly in ink to rear of book, otherwise in Very Good condition. First edition, pp 319, frontis, 17 photographic illustrations all as called for, wood cut illustrations at chapter headings and in text. The present volume will, it is hoped, have some value as an attempt to show the romance and reality of a corner of India remote from railways and the usual tourist lines, little known to Europeans in general, though famous in the annals of Hinduism and a region of great sanctity and popular resort for the people of the country.
