What Our Customers Say...
Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding
Third edition. Reviewing the customs and cultures of Hinduism, including: society in India, the caste system, Brahminical life, and remarks on religion. Written by Abbe J. A. Dubois, a French Catholic Missionary in India known as Dodda Swami by the local people. He presented Indian cultures, traditions, thoughts and the varnasrama system in much of his work. He failed, however, in his mission of converting Indians to Christianity; and often expressed the opinion that the project was doomed to failure.
In the original blue cloth binding. Externally, very smart with light shelf wear and rubbing to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright and clean with age toning to the endpapers only.
