In the 1600s European travellers discovered Indian vegetarianism and Western culture was changed forever. On the threshold of the modern age, meat-eating became a flashpoint in the debate about mankind's treatment of nature. Radicals and eccentrics rubbed shoulders with major figures, as Descartes, Newton, Rousseau, Voltaire and Shelley all challenged their society's carnivorous habits. A clean, tight and near fine copy.

As an assistant surgeon in the celebrated regiment of North West Frontier warriors, the 4th Punjab Native Infantry, James Fairweather soon found himself at the centre of the Indian Mutiny. Often used as little more than cannon fodder, of the 1,000 men in the regiment, 900 would be lost to enemy action and disease. His extraordinary honest and dramatic memoirs have been edited and annotated by the author William Wright, former Chairman of the Victorian Military Society. A good, clean and tight copy.
