The celebrations at Goa arranged for November-December 1910 have afforded a suitable opportunity of reproducing a small but admirable volume on Goa written by Pere Denis L. Cottineau de Kloguen, one time chaplain of Colaba, who spent a long time in Goa studying the history of the old city, and then wrote a book which deserves to be called a classic. It was published at Madras in 1831 just after the death of the author, with a map showing the actual state of the city of Goa at the very time he wrote–a state far different from now. For at his time the Religious Orders were still flourishing in the convents, their expulsion taking place only a few years later–i.e in 1835; and many of the churches now totally disappeared, were then either intact or visible in their decay. With some omissions it was taken almost bodily by Fonseca into his Historical Sketch of Goa; and some of the parts omitted are just those which one would desire to have left in. The text of this volume, having first been printed in the Examiner, is now issued as an Examiner Reprint–thus doing good service to librarians and students of ecclesiastical history, most of whom may never have come across Cottineau’s treatise.
This book describes Goa, the Metropolis of the Portuguese Settlements in India, with an account of the state of the city, and of territories under its immediate dependence.
Readers should bear in mind that all features of Goa as actually seen by the author refer to about the year 1827.
