About this Item: His Majesty's Stationery Office, London, 1918. Sewn binding. Condition: Very good. First Edition (?). Quarto, 93pp., illustrated. MISSING TITLE PAGE. Ex-library with minimal markings. Other than missing title page, a very good copy. Signatures loosely bound in a string binding with no covers. Somewhat fragile, but the heavy legal paper is mostly bright and clean, with a few small tears and creases here and there, not affecting text. Interior contents bright and clean. Has been folded over for many years in a library manila folder. An uncommon title, which goes into great detail about "crimes" against British rule in India. The length of this report and the details within show that British rule in India clearly had an expiration date. Seller Inventory # 958

About this Item: Calcutta: Superintendent Government Printing, India 1919, 1919. Reprint pp.xv, 226, 8 folding maps, original cloth-backed boards. A very good copy in rather dusty original boards, some tears to maps (without loss) where opened without care. The Sedition Committee, known as the Rowlatt Committee after its president Mr Justice Sidney Arthur Taylor Rowlatt, profoundly shaped the Indian freedom movement for more than two decades. Its objectives were "to investigate and report on the nature and extent of the criminal conspiracies connected with the revolutionary movement in India," and to advise on legislation that might enable Government to deal effectively with them. The committee was particularly concerned with any possible links with Germany or Bolshevik Russia. Their deliberations led to the passing of the hated Rowlatt Act, an extension of the 1915 Defence of India Act, which gave the Viceroy draconian powers to quell sedition, to detain political activists without trial, and to silence the press. This in turn unleashed nationwide protest led by Mahatma Gandhi, culminating in the Jallianwala Bagh massacre of April 1919. The maps show the locations of "crimes and conspiracies" investigated.
