Kotagherry Adieu to the blue mountains. From the Introduction The appearance of Goa and the Blue Mountains in 1851 marked the public debut of that astonishingly protean Victorian Richard Francis Burton. An explorer soldier consul and connoisseur of the sword a polyglot of unrivaled powers a poet translator and prolific writer about the peoples and customs of alien lands Burton made his first bid for attention with this account of his travels through southwestern India. As if to underscore his entry onto the British scene he published two more books later in the same year the two volume Scinde; or the unhappy valley and Sindh and the races that inhabit the valley of the Indus and yet another falconry in the valley of the Indus in 1852. Yet few contemporaries took notice. Neither Goa nor the other books were especially well received by reviewers or readers and the fame that Burton subsequently acquired for his adventures in Arabia and Africa cast these earlier works on India even further in the shadows. Goa has never before now been reprinted in full and copies of it have become exceedingly hard to find. 240 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería 51097
