ALS to John Timbs. Explaining his book on India and telling his correspondent that he has gotten no word from Chapman & Hall. He gives an outline of the book
1861·33 Norland Square, Notting Hill
by (India) Duncan, Jonathan
33 Norland Square, Notting Hill, 1861. 4pp. 12mo. Old folds. 4pp. 12mo. Born in Bombay in 1799, Duncan was the illegitimate son of the Governor of Bombay. Duncan's father's wealth enabled him to pursue a literary life and he published regularly from 1825-57. He summarises the work thus: "The object of this book is to enable those who have never studied India to acquire a knowledge of its institutions with the best possible expenditure of time." A book on India would be seemingly inevitable for a writer with his background, yet the work described here was seemingly never published. (Inventory #: 304910)
