 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Calcutta (Kolkata), one of the oldest city of India, has the political and social history of its own. The book, authored by K. Blechynden in 1905, presents before us a vivid picture of this city in lucid style form its early years around 1690 when it was founded, till the end of the days Lord Warren Hastings, the first governer general of India from 1774-1786. The author, a foreigner, living in Calcutta for many years, had developed an intimacy and love for the city which encouraged him to shed a bright light on the social manner and customs, food and dwelling places, amusement and griefs of all sorts of people of old calcutta in the very background of its political situations-past and present, besides we have a graphic discription of the public buildings, churches etc. (mostly constructed in 18th century)along with their life like illustration. The author for collecting the material for this look had taken full advantage of the published writings of others, old diaries, the permanet records, the maps of the town, quit a good number of old illustrations, pictures and portraits, rare photograph and engravings which he made avilable to him from the publishers and various other sources like libraries, musems, etc. for which he expressed his gratitude to the person concerned. A worth reading treatise indeed for those having intrest and respect for this monumental city of this great country- India.
