Evidence

"On the way back [from the Bombay Secretariat] bought a few clothes and some books from Thacker, a better *libraire* than you will find in all Africa.[...] Out again at five and discovered Tarapooree Walla, a bookshop recalling in its extent, variety and disorder the best traditions of the Charing Cross Road. Ran amok.[...] Early to bed but read until 11.45 when finding myself weak and nervy took my first grain of opium (pill) and to sleep.""

This experience is submited partly because it records enthusiastic browsing in two booksellers premises in Bombay. Unusually for this reader, the titles of books read that evening are not recorded, but it is reasonable to assume among them were some of the books bought that day.
