The best impressions of a city are often those recorded by outsiders. Shaped over three centuries, this most vibrant of cities has always held a special fascination for British visitors, and this collection recalls their impressions of Calcutta's people, history, buildings, culture, and daily
routine from the days of Job Charnock to the present. Drawn from a wealth of letters, journals, poems, and other writings, this is an intriguing portrait of both the city and the English abroad.

`She has not only breathed in its atmosphere but also amassed a wide collection of snippets from writings about it ... The book has many pleasing sketches, and, at the end, 16 useful pages of glossary, biographical notes and notes on sources.'
