Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1904 edition. Excerpt: ...in the September Number (1904). W. T., Harringay (3,813).--It is difficult to judge accurately without seeing the piece, but after a careful examination of the photograph sent and comparison with specimens in the British Museum, we are of opinion that your dish is of modern Indian manufacture.
