General comments: I found this book while taking my usual stroll around the pavement bookshops near Golpark. This book is considered one of the first serious studies of Satyajit Ray’s films and won Silver Lotus at the 1981 National Awards ceremony. The transcription on the endpaper of the book suggests that this particular copy was gifted by the author to the actor Anil Chattopadhyay, who himself was part of three films by Ray.
