Description
W G Burn Murdoch - From Edinburgh to India and Burmah - 1905
Colonial history, Illustrated, Topography, Travels - Quantity: 1

I have here a beautifully illustrated book entitled FROM EDINBURGH TO INDIA & BURMAH by W G Burn Murdoch.  No date given but would guess at around 1905 as it is very similar to the A & C Black guides which were published around that time.  It features 24 full colour plates on glossy paper as well as many b/w in-text illustrations.  

Dark blue hardboards with a colour illustrated picture of an Indian woman wearing an orange sari and carrying a large pot on her head, and gilt lettering, to the front board.  The spine has gilt lettering too. Frontispiece is loose. Boards have a few scuffs to the edges but on the whole are in very good condition.  Red endpapers.  Pages clean and firm.  403 pages, 22.5 x 15 cm.
