Picturesque India: A Handbook for European Travellers - W. S. [William Sproston] CaineGeorge Routledge & Sons, 1890, Hardback ..
Condition: Good. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding with slight fraying to the same. 2" split at the foot of the joint of the upper board to the spine. Hinge starting at the first blank. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Pages lightly age-tanned with scattered foxing and spotting throughout. Map to start of the start of chapter one is torn with the loss of most of the plate.
Deep red decorative cloth with gilt titling to spine and upper board with illustration of an elephant on upper board, tower on the spine. Most dates for this book appear to be for the, later, 1898 printing although the advertisements to the rear of this copy seem to authenticate the 1890 date with the inclusion of Little Wideawake for 1891.
