General comments:
This was a gift from a former teacher of English literature, and someone I grew very close to. Ruby di had an incredible collection of books, much of which she donated to the Department of English, JU, student library. A few she had reserved as gifts for me and she knew exactly what my taste in literature was like. I have speculated if the “Jyoti” is perhaps Jyoti Bhattacharya, but it may well not be him. One wonders what had disrupted the peace to begin with.
Transcription of inscription:
For Ruby Di
As an overture of peace
Jyoti
(your most humble, though devoted, admirer.)
