Ghose, Indira (ed), Memsahibs Abroad (Delhi and Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1999).

This anthology provides travel writing by the memsahibs of the Raj who were anxious to see 'the real India'. The text seeks to salvage long-forgotten writings by Englishwomen travelling in India - writings that are perceptive, amusing and of historical value - and which have long been out of print. The book contains an in-dept introduction as well as introductions to its various thematic sections and biographical notes on the travellers included.
