First edition (Colonial edition) in ochre cloth with red title label lettered in gilt. Victorian novel set in colonial India. Steel was originally thought by the publisher to be a man and perpetuated that misconception – she “offers a woman’s perspective on British colonial government and Anglo-Indian relations. And furthermore, in their scope and detail, her historical novels rival the Waverley novels written by her countryman, Walter Scott”. A nicely bound edition with the bookplate of a director of the firm responsible for printing the book to the front pastedown. VG Scarce
