The Indian Mutiny of 1857
FONT>, 1891. FONT>, 1891 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A nicely bound copy of George Bruce Malleson's (8 May 1825 1 March 1898) history of the Indian mutiny. The author was stationed in India at the time of the Mutiny, and, unlike other historians of that event, he concluded that the uprising was both predictable and based on much deeper political discontent than its superficial cause - the issuance of greased cartridges to native troops which violated their religious practices. He also believed that the Mutiny was not at all spontaneous, but the result of a determined conspiracy by Indian nobles. With seven plans and illustrations, including a frontispiece of the author. Condition: In a half morocco binding over marbled boards. Externally, rubbed with some wear to extremities and minor loss to backstrip. Rear hinge cracked. Internally, firmly bound. Endpapers browned, some light spotting here and there, otherwise a bright and clean copy. Neat inscription to front free endpaper. Overall: GOOD..
