Curry and Rice on Forty Plates
Or the Ingredients of Social Life at ""Our Station"" in India by George Franklin Atkinson in 1911
From the Colonial Library of Dignified Irreverence
The Colonial Library of Dignified Irreverence is devoted to the lighter sides of past, and occasionally current, life East of Suez. The series is of questionable literary merit. Various sizes. These travelling companions are well dressed, bound as they are in imperial khaki, solid enough to withstand the roughest Himalayan trek or most strenuous journey on a cruise liner in the Pacific. Hardcover (HC) with gold stamped cover, gilt edges, bookmark and shiraza. Bound to amuse. Limited editions.
Curry and Rice on Forty Plates. A light-hearted account of life in India, with 40 delightful vignettes, including 'Our Colonel', 'Our Padre', 'Our Magistrate's Wife', 'Our Racecourse', 'Our Bazaar', 'Our Agriculturists' and 'Our Nuwab'. Each is accompanied by a watercolour illustration.
