Thanks all for these excellent pointers, which I'm passing along to our
researcher. As expected: there's plenty of ways to get fairly detailed
maps (including small administrative units and their boundaries) for
CURRENT India. What is hard (though apparently do-able) is finding such
maps from the British period.

[Consald-l] district/tehsil boundary maps of British India


Dear Colleagues,

Could someone advise me on where one might find maps of British India showing district (and possibly tehsil) boundaries? I've seen plenty of print (and online) maps of great detail of India during the Raj, but I haven't located any explicitly with these boundaries. A researcher here is about to leave to start exploring archives in London for such maps, but if anyone has any bibliographic pointers to specific publications of maps or atlases to fit this need, they would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,
David Magier

[Consald-l] 25 Urdu books available


For those of you who are not at an institution with a strong Urdu
language (especially literature) profile:

Columbia University Libraries received a donation of mostly Urdu books.
I have accepted and sent for processing those which were not already in
our collections, leaving 25 books which we already have. The donor has
given me permission to post to this list, offering the 25 remaining
books to another library.

The books all have a handwritten label "Naghmana Sheikh Collection" in
honor of the donor's mother.
