The Imperial Gazetteer of India.
- London, Trubner 1881. Nine volumes octavo contemporary half morocco (a bit scuffed); each volume with a folding map mounted on linen. Parliamentary library gilt crest on spines and front boards, no other marking. Some wrinkling of paper in volume five but no staining, a bit of foxing, not much; in all a rather good and handsome set. First edition of this monument of persistence. "For the first time in the history of our rule, an opportunity has fallen to me of finding out the truth about the Indian people, and of honestly telling it" (preface).
      [Bookseller: Richard Neylon]
