What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Very Scarce

A very scarce work in the original paper boards, with the binder's label of 'Prakash, Book Binders, Dharwar' to the front paste down. Also a twenty-one-page article bound with two staples.

Ink inscription to the front free end paper of 'Western India: A Regional Geography'. Ink inscription to the front page of 'Geography and the Indian Census 1951'.

Chandrashekhar Dhundiraj Deshpande (1912-1999) was an Indian geographer and author who worked to promote geography as a discipline in India, especially in schools and colleges.

His work Western India: A Regional Geography discusses the geography, climate, agriculture, geology and industry of Western India in the mid-twentieth century, with special reference to Gujarat, Maharashtra and Karnatak.

Included with this work is his article 'Geography and the Indian Census 1951', reprinted from The Indian Geographical Journal, Volume XXIV, No. 4, October-December 1949. In this work, Deshpande examines the subject of Census maps.

Condition

One work in the original paper boards, the other bound with two staples. Externally, very smart, though a little sunned to the front board and spine of 'Western India'. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean.
