This book is an interesting and unusual book based on letters written home by an Australian girl in India for the Durbar proclaiming Edward VII King-Emperor on 1 January 1903. Ruby Madden, daughter of Sir John Madden, Chief Justice and Lieut-Governor of Victoria, spent ten months in India and the letters include the season in Bombay, three weeks in Delhi as a guest in Lord Kitchener's Camp and the start of the season at Simla. Ruby's descriptions of all she saw and did were spontaneous and her letters gave a vivid idea not only of the actual Durbar spectacle but also of the local life that surrounded the event. The author has edited the letters and written with grace and clarity, comments on the people and places as a background for the romantic story of a charming and intrepid young woman. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. A very rare collectors copy. Standard postage free in Australia.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
