The Provincial Geography of India series was created during the early part of the twentieth century to provide the general reader with introductory texts on the characteristic features of the various Indian provinces. This volume, which was originally published in 1913, concentrates on Madras, together with Mysore, Coorg, and other associated states. As with the other books in the series, a highly readable analysis is provided, moving through the various geographical features of the region, both human and physical. Numerous illustrative figures are also present, including maps, tables, and photographs. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the colonial period and Indian geography.
