This slender compilation of speeches about Gandhi and "Our Duty in India" was simultaneously published in especially handsome hardcover and softcover editions, both much prized today by collectors.

Description: This is a beautiful softcover copy of the Second Printing of the First English Edition in astonishing condition. We hesitate to describe any softcover volume this old as mint, but, aside from a smattering of light foxing to the prelims, it is just that. Preserved in a handsome burgundy cloth slipcase.
