About the Edition

The Vale of Kashmir is too well known to require description. It is the "happy hunting-ground" of the Anglo-Indian sportsman and tourist, the resort of artists and invalids, the home of pashm shawls and exquisitely embroidered fabrics, and the land of Lalla Rookh. Its inhabitants, chiefly Moslems, infamously governed by Hindus, are a feeble race, attracting little interest, valuable to travellers as "coolies" or porters, and repulsive to them from the mingled cunning and obsequiousness which have been fostered by ages of oppression.
