Curry and Rice (1911), a book comprising 50 lithographs and chapters documenting lives of Englishmen living in colonial India, can only be found at the Punjab Archives Library, boasts Ejaz Hussain, the senior librarian at the Archives Library.
Among them is the library’s oldest treasure: Journal of Sir Thomas Roe that dates back to 1616. It documents Roe’s encounters with Mughal courtesans. Only two copies exist in the world, says Hussain. The other is at the India Office Library.
