A Letter to Robert Lowe . on the Condition and Requirements of the Presidency of Madras.
- Madras, printed by Messrs. Pharoah and Co. 1854. Octavo (original?) marbled cloth (spine and corners worn and chipped with about half an inch missing from the bottom of the spine); x,325pp and errata slip. The binding seems original; it is competent and simply, not quite crudely, lettered and ruled in gilt on the spine. Inside quite a good copy. Norton was a Madras lawyer, sometime sheriff and later professor of law and Advocate-General, and this is an extensively documented warning and savaging of the British mishandling of Madras and the appalling state of pretty much everything. 'Woe be to India if the present crisis is allowed to slip by unimproved' he says here and three years later in his 'The Rebellion in India: How to Prevent Another' he, understandably, reminds his readers that he told them so. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
      [Bookseller: Richard Neylon]
