Ooty Preserved: A Victorian Hill Station in India - Mollie Panter-Downes

Century, 1985, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Pages gently age tanned.

First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Ootacamund, or ‘Ooty’ as it is affectionately called, was Queen of the Indian hill stations in the high days of the British Raj, summer hostess to Viceroys and the Governors of Madras. For all its charm, it has always been something of an anachronism with its Scottish scenery and its architecture ranging from Neo-Gothic to Camberley-suburban — a comforting little piece of England to which the British gratefully retreated during the hot Indian summer.
