The hardcover printed front is the title page of this statistical compendium, a credit to the British Raj in India that they so thoroughly documented their Districts. For example, in the population graph, they break down rural & urban, number of occupied houses, number of persons per square mile, and population growth from 1872 to 1881 to 1891. Pages 29 of statistics with a blank page between each printed sheet. Light green hard boards with a blue cloth spine, a bit of fading and wear along the edges. Very clean and tight inside. This series was published at least through 1917. Now RARE, of course
