This delightful book breathes new life into a crowd of images, which seem almost to belong to another world.

One finds in Calcutta, both romance and an inspiration. The city, frequently designated as one of the most commonplace, is in reality one of the most interesting cities in the world. We picture again the mortal agony of the Black Hole, the tender passion of Warren Hastings.

The book is the result of the author's inexhaustible knowledge and untiring erudition. It is indeed a reverence to the past.
