Geography of Indian Empire and Ceylon

Cameron Morrison (Author)
Synopsis Indian Empire, geographically, extends over India proper and Burma, and a few islands off their coasts. India proper itself consists of all the lands lying between Himalayas and the Indian Ocean. The study of the geography of Indian Empire is educationally of peculiar value. The present book is divided into twenty-two chapters and each chapter has been devised to present a reasonable balanced account of the theme. Starting from Introduction the study goes to describe the relief of India. It further deals with the coasts and islands, climate and rainfall, rivers, natural productions, effects of climate, population, government, political division, Indian provinces, native states and frontier India. Burma, which is the northern part of the Indo-Chinese peninsula also forms a chapter of the present book. Later, the book covers foreign possessions, peoples, mineral resources, industries, communications, trade, etc.. The book closes with the Ceylon which lies to the South-east of Indian peninsula. The book is well illustrated with 57 maps depicting various aspects of geography. The author has made an attempt to put and keep clearly before the young scholars the causes of things which may prove, to the their mind, the first doorway to the great world of science. As for teachers, a study of geography of India is not merely a means of conveying useful and interesting information, it gives them a golden opportunity to present to Indian youths a living picture of the land they dwell in and to impart a knowledge of the conditions under which its teeming population live. In this way, this book will serve as a ready guide to scholars for study of the geography in India, Burma and Ceylon.
