A descriptive account of the India which tourists would encounter, as it was in 1906, authored by the English travel writer Eustace Alfred Reynolds-Ball (1858-1928). He describes the book in his introduction as a ''popular sketch of the present-day topographical, archaeological, historical and social aspects of the great show cities.''

Includes an index with about 20-pages of practical recommendations for tourists regarding motoring, cycling, railroads, health and medical issues, voyages to India, and reference works, plus several pages of comic, albeit condescendingly treated, examples of things Indians have said or written.
