Reginald Heber (1783-1826) was appointed as the second Anglican Bishop of Calcutta in 1823, having previously been connected with both the Church Missionary Society and the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge. At the time, the diocese of Calcutta covered all of India, and also southern Africa and Australia, and his short episcopate involved much travelling around his scattered flock. Heber's account of his travels in India and Sri Lanka was published by his widow Amelia in 1828, and expanded to three volumes in this third edition of 1828-1829, which provides a valuable description of the culture of India in the 1820s. Heber wrote positively about the moral character of Hindus, and identified faults as well as strengths in British rule in India. Volume 2 describes his travels from Cawnpore through Delhi, Agra and Jaipur to Baroda in north-west India, and includes much detail about Indian customs

1 edition published in 1830 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reginald Heber (1783-1826), had long been interested in the Church of England's overseas missions when he was appointed second Bishop of Calcutta in 1823. The diocese had been established only in 1814, and included India, Southern Africa and Australia; Heber's short episcopate involved much travelling around his scattered flock. His widow, Amelia published his Sermons and Narrative of a Journey through the Upper Provinces of India (also available in this series), before writing this two-volume biography, published in 1830 and also containing previously unpublished writings by Heber. Volume 2 begins in 1820 and describes Heber's time as Bishop, focusing especially on his travels and the difficulties he encountered. Heber was unusually sympathetic towards the Indian people, and worked closely with other religious leaders; he was also willing to see failings in British rule. An appendix includes letters and poems, and tributes by others, including Southey and Mrs Hemans
