This is the 1st Ed. No. LXXII, in the Second series of the Bombay in the Days of Queen Anne.
As a official of the East India Service, John Brunell arrived to the subcontinent in the latter half of the 17th century. This book has an introduction by Samuel T. Sheppard and includes Brunell’s two letters (1710 & 1711) to his father from Bombay and his later exploits in Bengal. Aside from the fascination of his own experiences, Burnell’s story includes other noteworthy aspects, particularly his descriptions of the Danish and Dutch villages, as well as Hugli and its suburb of Bandel.
This book includes a unique and little-known description of the early years of the British colony in Bombay
