John Alexander Chapman was not only a poet literary critic and translator but also the longest served (1911 1930) Librarian of the Imperial Library. Though his poems are numerous he could not get recognition as an eminent English poet on account of his penchant for Sakta and other esoteric Indian themes unintelligible to the ordinary readers. His critical studies of Shakespeare Wordsworth and other poets made him acceptable to the English readers. The work of Chapman at the Imperial Library laid the foundation of the National Library of India for he not only started collecting books on Indian languages but also paid social attention to conservation cataloguing and other works. He succeeded in shifting the Imperial Library from Metcalfe Hall to Esplanade East for saving the books from Howrah smoke and Calcutta coal gass. A representative selection of his poetry and literary criticism is presented in this John Alexander Chapman Selections from the Works of a Lover of India. 447 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 52665

The modern Police force in India begins from the appointment of a commissioner of police in Calcutta on First November 1856. The commissionerate system of policing is thus the contribution of Calcutta to India. The Kolkata Police is yet to conclude its year long one hundred fiftieth Anniversary Celebration in November 2006. The evolution of the Calcutta police has not yet been documented so is also the history of Lalbazar its headquarters. The Origin of the Kolkata Police by P.T. Nair is the first documented history of the city's guardians of law and order. The author has not spared any pains in unearthing all documents of the Calcutta Police from 1690 to 1866 and present them in this seminal work. 792 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 64649
