The Greased Cartridge: The Heroes and Villains of 1857-58
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 817436823X / 9788174368232; Softcover; New; 
In most accounts of the revolt, the greased cartridge has been referred to as the spark and tinder that lit the flames of rebellion. .The greased cartridge - what was it all about? The army so far had been quipped with the smooth-barrelled musket, which had a protracted loading procedure and was not accurate over long ranges. The new Enfield rifles, which were now being issued, had grooved or rifled barrels. This made them more accurate and gave them a longer range. The powder and bullet for the new rifle were put together in a paper cartridge. To load the rifle, the end of the cartridge containing the powder had to be bitten off so that the charge would ignite. The cartridge was then rammed down the muzzle of the rifle.. The grease used was tallow, probably containing both cow and pig fat. To "the cow reverencing Hindu and the pig paranoid Muslims" having to bite this was repellent, defiling and deadly to their religious prospects.' The Revolt of 1857-58 was the biggest and bloodiest conflict against any European colonial power during the nineteenth century. This book is essentially about the heroes - Tatya Tope, Nana Saheb, Rani Lakshmi Bai, Kunwar Singh of Jagdishpur - and not to forget, a few villains. Though the revolt failed in its objective, even in failure it served a grand purpose. It was a source of inspiration for the national liberation movement, which later achieved what the revolt could not. Printed Pages: 168. 108568

The Story of Tea
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174369295 / 9788174369291; Softcover; New; 
The Story of Tea traces the history, myths and rituals of growing and drinking tea from the tea gardens of China to the roadside dhabas of India. Thomas Garraway’s first public sale of tea in England in 1657 was of historic importance. For this he published and distributed a poster … "The leaf is of such known virtues ... that it is sold for twice its weight in silver. It maketh the body active and lusty. It helpeth the headache, giddiness and heaviness thereof. It is very good against stone and gravel, cleaning the kidneys and ureter. It is good against crudities, strengthening the weakness of the Ventricle or Stomack, causing good appetite and Digestion and particularly for men of a corpulent body and such as are great eaters of flesh.… It prevents and cures ague, surfeits… and fevers, by infusing a fit quantity of the leaf, thereby provoking a most gentle vomit… It drives away all pains in the Collick proceeding from wind and purgeth safely the Gall…" So said Thomas Garraway and, indeed, many believed him!

The Unforgettable Maharajas-150 Years of Photography
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8174362959 / 9788174362957; Hard Cover with a Slipcase; New; New; 
The Maharajas of India were undoubtedly one of the great anachronisms of the twentieth century. They lived in palaces, owned trains, built railway systems, had personal game preserves, found Buckingham Palace too small and-when it caught their fancy-brought a fleet of Rolls-Royces and turned them into garbage collection vans. Among them were enlightened rulers and profligate princes, saints and scoundrels, heroes and cowards, sadists and boors, charmers and eccentrics. Yet whatever they were, in the eyes of the people they ruled they had the divine right to do so. This power, coupled with their enormous wealth and fabulous jewellery, gave the Maharajas a status that made them larger than life. The Unforgettable Maharajas brings an amazing past to life. Its pictures passionately frame the Maharajas' times and lives to commemorate a milestone: 150 years of photography. Drawn from a comprehensive collection of historical photographs from princely India, private collections and the finest photo libraries in the world, this is also the largest selection of royal pictures in any one book. Many years of research and documentation were put into verify their details. The result is a book that conveys the romance that the Maharajas represented to the world and a historical record of an age we will never again see. Among the photographs some have never been printed before, such as the photograph of two English princes dressed as Sikhs, a relaxed Maharaja Bhupindar Singh with his glasses perched on his head, and the famous black buck carriage from Bikaner.
