From the rear side cover: This book, set between 1923-39, gives a historical and social account of the town of Bangalore in south India, as seen through the eyes of the author during his childhood and schooldays with his Greek grandparents. There are lively descriptions of the Bazaars, the Cantonment, the environs of the town with its Tamil, Canarese, Telugu and Muslim inhabitants. The British side is covered with accounts of the life of the British Garrison, the work of the Christian churches and scholastic life in a Catholic school. In all, it is a delightful detailed account which will evoke memories and provide an important source of material for social historians of pre-Independence India...

The condition of the book is generally very good. The covers have one or two very minor scuffs and creases, but the spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
