Mrs Meer Hassan Ali

Project Gutenberg allows you to download hundreds of free examples of classic literature. I was browsing through the author catalogue this morning when I came across OBSERVATIONS ON THE MUSSULMAUNS OF INDIA Descriptive of Their Manners, Customs, Habits and Religious OpinionsMade During a Twelve Years' Residence in Their Immediate Society by Mrs Meer Hassan Ali. You can download her book here.

The author was an Englishwoman who married an Indian Muslim during his stay in England between 1810 and 1816. She finally left India after twelve years because of ill health. I haven't been able to find any other information about her on Google. You can read more about her husband and his family in the 1917 introduction on the Project Gutenberg copy.

I have only skimmed over the first chapter but it looks pretty interesting. If you want to find other books the author catalogue is here.
