Radha Prasad Gupta Collection of Adventure Novels [c 1830-c 1940]

This fonds consists of 29 books digitised as part of the EAP127 Archiving Popular Market Bengali Books project, funded by the Endangered Archives Programme. The books are all adventure novels dating from the mid 19th to the early 21st Century, and were published by Rahasya-Lahari, Haridas Pal, and Ahindranath Chattopadhyay.

The original books were collected by R P Gupta from antiquarian book dealers, specialist publishers and through street purchases. Following his death, Jadavpur University purchased a large selection of his collections, including the items digitised here.

The books are primarily written in Bengali, although Hindi (in Bengali script) and English do appear occasionally.
