From Little London to Little Bengal traces the traffic in culture between Britain and India during the Romantic period. To some, Calcutta appeared to be a "Little London," while in London itself an Indianized community of returned expatriates was emerging as "Little Bengal." Circling between the two, this study reads British and Indian literary, religious, and historical sources alongside newspapers, panoramas, religious festivals, idols, and museum exhibitions. Together and apart, Britons and Bengalis waged a transcultural agon under the dynamic conditions of early nineteenth-century imperialism, struggling to claim cosmopolitan perspectives and, in the process, to define modernity. Daniel E. White shows how an ambivalent Protestant contact with Hindu devotion shaped understandings of the imperial mission for Britons and Indians during the period. Investigating global metaphors of circulation and mobility, communication and exchange, commerce and conquest, he follows the movements of people, ideas, books, art, and artifacts initiated by writers, publishers, educators, missionaries, travelers, and reformers. Along the way, he places luminaries like Romantic poet Robert Southey and Hindu reformer Rammohun Roy in dialogue with a fascinating array of lesser-known figures, from the Baptist missionaries of Serampore and the radical English journalist James Silk Buckingham to the mixed-race prodigy Henry Louis Vivian Derozio. In concert and in conflict, these cultural emissaries and activists articulated national and cosmopolitan perspectives that were more than reactions on the part of marginal groups to the metropolitan center of power and culture. The British Empire in India involved recursive transactions between the global East and West, channeling cultural, political, and religious formations that were simultaneously distinct and shared, local, national, and transnational.

The City of London has been a major settlement for two millennia. It became the epicentre of trading with the world as long ago as the Roman invasion - being established as an outpost along the River Thames in AD47. Even today, time hasn't in any way diminished its global influence. Now, artist and photographer, Clare Newton, explores the City's secretive treasures, but rather than take you on a journey portrayed with traditional photography, she creates the artistry of images through long exposures combined with a technique called 'shutter-dragging', accentuating the past where all that's left is a ghostly residue.

The City of London has been a major settlement for two millennia. It became the epicentre of trading with the world as long ago as the Roman invasion - being established as an outpost along the River Thames in AD47. Even today, time hasn't in any way diminished its global influence. City of London appointed its own Lord Mayor of London, Henry Fitz-Ailwin de Londonestone, who served for 24 terms between 1189-1212. It has a different council structure from authorities in the rest of the country - keeping historical traditions which did not apply elsewhere - and its own police force is separate from the Metropolitan Police, who serve the rest of the capital. On formal occasions, upon entering the City, the Queen is presented with the City's pearl-encrusted Sword of State at Temple Bar by the Lord Mayor as a symbol of the Monarch's overlordship. The City is made up of 25 small, self-governing areas, or Wards and 110 livery companies representing ancient and modern trades, otherwise known as Guilds. Two such Guilds, the Merchant Taylors (tailors) and Skinners (fur traders), both founded in 1327, had a fierce argument as to which should be Guild number 'six' and which Guild number 'seven' - a most important factor when it came to positioning their trades in the Lord Mayor's annual parade. The conflict eventually overflowed in 1484, resulting in many broken heads and requiring the incoming Mayor, Robert Billesden, to intervene and announce... "...that the Skinners be placed sixth in the order of precedence during the even-year date, whereas the Merchant Taylors be moved to sixth place on the odd-year date..." And so was coined Chaucer's phrase, "At sixes and sevens...". ...which worked fine for 522 years - until 2006, when a member of the Merchant Taylors became Lord Mayor and overruled the Skinners' precedence. Henceforth, however, the Skinners' and Merchant Taylors' continue with tradition (most important) and alternate their precedence each year. The City is used to a great many squabbles.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
