This was work done by Adami at the Royal Indian Engineering (RIE) College which is embossed in gilt on front cover. "The Royal Indian Engineering College was a British college of Civil Engineering founded by Sir George Tomkyns Chesney in 1870. It was intended to train engineers for the Indian Public Works department. In 1885, the first forestry school in England was established in conjunction with the college, under the direction of William Schlich. In 1906, its work transferred to India and the college closed. The college was variously and colloquially referred to as "Cooper's Hill" and "I.C.E. College", (I.C.E. being an acronym for Indian Civil Engineering). The college was also referred to as RIEC."
