Tara, A Mahratta Tale
Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1863. First Edition. Three volumes. Octavo. Bound in publisher's brown cloth, with decorative panelling to boards, black to front board and blind to back board, with gilt titles to spine. Corners slightly rubbed, some trivial bumping to spine ends, slightly faded to backstrip. Internally clean except for a little spotting to prelims of volume one. Shows extremely well. Captain Meadows Taylor, later Colonel, was born in Liverpool but left England for India when he was fifteen. He worked as an administrator for the Nazim of Hyderabad rather than for the East India Company, and learned several Indian languages. As a consequence his work as a novelist shows particular sensitivity to the situation of Indians under the colonial system. This scarce Victorian triple-decker is an adventure novel, set in the Indian subcontinent. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Adrian Harrington Ltd, PBFA, ABA, ILAB [Royal Tunbridge Wells, KENT, United Kingdom]
