About this Item

4to. 27 by 21 cm. 149, [9] pp. 20 hand-colored aquatint plates. Abbey Travel 440. Tooley 184. As the title makes clear, this is about the collision of colonizer and colonized, and the more personal experience of the Englishman in India, with its people, its sights and sounds. Although stereotypes and prejudices abound, the text is told with a light touch, as it was meant to entertain as well as inform, and the plates truly allow us to see India through the eyes of a Regency gentleman. Lovely contemporary red straight-grained morocco binding, with gilt Greek key border, blindstamped band of palmetto within that, a spine of raised bands and elaborate gilt tracery. Some rubbing and scuffs to the leather, but still very attractive. Occasional finger smudging and other soiling but overall, clean and bright within. Full Straight-Grained Morocco, Decorated with a Gilt Greek Key Border. Bookseller Inventory # 004197

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
