Forgotten Women: South Park Street Cemetery Calcutta
Christine McCauley
Hardcover (hand-bound)

‘Forgotten Women’ pays homage to the remarkable women who undertook the voyage to India in the 16th & 17th Centuries. They lie in a green and crumbling necropolis in the heart of modern Kolkata. The expectation of survival was just two monsoons and death called most long before their hour.

“In this inclement clime of human life.”

Single section hardback in ‘old stock’ buckram, foil blocked in pink.
Printed three and two colour risograph on Zerkall paper, interleaved with glassine. Endpapers in pink Hahemuhle, Bugra Butten.
