General comments: This was a gift from Sri Arun Das Gupta, legendary professor of English literature at Calcutta University, to my parents for their wedding. Arun babu probably did not have the heart to write directly in a volume so pretty. The card looks more like it was stuck to the gift-wrap from which my parents had carefully salvaged it. It continues to float around the pages of the book.
