Goa on Gutenberg…


When I searched for “Goa” and “India” on Project Gutenberg, I found
240 books showing up. [http://www.gutenberg.org/catalog/world/results]

Many seem related to the history of the Philippines, and there’s one
titled “The Pirates of Malabar, and an Englishwoman in India Two
Hundred Years Ago”.

Snake-enthusiast Rahul Alvares’ “Free from School” (feel happy I
convinced him to put it up there) is available there too.

Here’s another book that could have some relevance to Goa: Prince
Henry the Navigator, the Hero of Portugal and of Modern Discovery,
1394-1460 A.D. With an Account of Geographical Progress Throughout the Middle Ages As the Preparation for His Work. [http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/18757]

There are books related to Macao and Akbar showing up too. Interesting! Didn’t someone say “sharing knowledge is power”? Incidentally, you could help this project by proofreading just a single page a day [http://www.pgdp.net/c/]
