Nowlukka:
Waifs and Strays. (Poems)

Simla: printed at the Station Press, 1867. First edition. [vi], ii, 116. Light verse from the Raj, including narratives of expat life, from the era which gave us Lewis Carroll and W.S.Gilbert. Text within ruled borders throughout. Many pages have some foxing or soiling. One or two lines amended in ink, presumably by the author: although plainly a man, he is nowhere identified. With yellow endpapers (new at the front), and all edges gilt. 8.5 x 5.5 ins, in contemporary crimson morocco with five raised bands, with gilt border decoration and dentelles. Bright and firm, if rather mottled. Very Good.
