At its greatest extent, the presidency included most of southern India, including the whole of the Indian states of Odisha, Kerala, Karnataka and the Union Territory of Lakshadweep. The island of Ceylon was also for a time a part of it. First published in 1913, The Mysore Presidency deals with the geography, history, anthropology, administration, industry, produce, chief towns and villages, etc., of this presidency. The author was lent willing help of several friends in this stupendous work. Special mention may be made of S. Gamble of Indian Forest Department on flora and fauna and E.B. Havellon on Architecture. It is part of a series commissioned by the Government of British India on the various presidencies in India.
