ggf. zzgl. Versand

Die hier in einer überarbeiteten Fassung vorliegenden Tagebücher der großen Weltreise Ida Pfeiffers erschienen 1850 unter dem Titel "Eine Frauenfahrt um die Welt" und wurden ein Besteller. Die Reise führt die 44-jährige Österreicherin nach Brasilien, wo sie nur knapp einem Mordanschlag entkam, über China, wo der Anblick einer weißen Frau derart ungewöhnlich war, daß sie ständig in Bedrängnis geriet, nach Ceylon. In Madras betrat sie indisches Festland, erhielt Zutritt zu Häusern reicher, vornehmer Inder, erlebte Tigerjagden und war bei einer Witwenverbrennung anwesend. Persien und Mesopotamien zählten zu den gefährlichsten Routen ihrer Unternehmungen. Nach zweieinhalb Jahren kehrte Ida Pfeiffer über Armenien, Griechenland und Triest nach Wien zurück. Ihre Reisetagebücher begeistern durch Einfachheit der Erzählweise und Wahrheitstreue und stellen darüber hinaus ein besonderes Zeitdokument dar.

Winter India
29,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Winter India was written by an American woman traveller who had spent long periods in Asia, particularly in Japan, Java, China and India. The book was published in 1903 during the British colonial empire but Eliza Scidmore trascends that period of history and mentions places and ceremonies and gods and goddesses which are part of the India of all times. In her book one feels transported to Delhi, can learn about Madras and the Seven Pagodas, visit Calcutta in Christmas week and feel in touch with the spirit of buddhism reading about her description of the historical site of the bo-tree, learn about Shiva and Benares and travel in the imagination through the Khyber Pass with the old silk route caravans.

[Illustrated with over one hundred maps, photos and portraits, of the battles, individuals and places involved in the Indian Mutiny]&quote;John Ruggles was born at Lewisham, Kent, on 21 July 1827, the son of William Henry Ruggles, a local schoolmaster. He was educated at New Propriety School, Blackheath, and attended Addiscombe Military Seminary, August 1843 to June 1845. He landed in Calcutta in January 1846 where he was posted as Ensign to the 41st Bengal Native Infantry. He served in the expedition under General Wheeler against Kote Kangra in 1846, attached to the 2nd Bengal N.I.&quote;During the Indian Mutiny he was present throughout the defence of the Residency at Lucknow, June to November 1857, as Officiating Sub-Assistant Commissary General (Medal and clasp). He joined the China expedition in 1860-61, as a volunteer with the 15th Loodhianah Sikhs (Medal). Ruggles transferred to the 19th Punjabis in 1862 and served as second-in-command of the regiment in the Bhootan campaign of 1865, including the assault and capture of the Bala Stockades (Medal and clasp; brevet of Major). Ruggles retired on 1 September 1876, as Honorary Major-General, and was appointed Honorary Colonel of the 19th Punjabis on 13 May 1904.&quote;In 1906 Ruggles' Indian Mutiny memoirs were published, to much acclaim, under the title Recollections of a Lucknow Veteran 1845-1876. This was published by Longmans, Green, & Co., not quite fifty years after the Indian Mutiny but near enough for the Madras Times to term it 'The Mutiny Golden Jubilee Book'.&quote;Major-General Ruggles, one of the last surviving original defenders at Lucknow, died on 26 July 1919, by which time he had become known as 'Father of the Garrison' - the senior of the little band that drinks the 'Silent Toast' each year'.&quote;-Dix Noonan Webb
