Sir James Campbell commenced the . Bombay Gazetteer ia 
1873 and issued the last volume in 1901. It was his intention to 
render the contents of this great work more accessible to the 
public by the issue of a General Index. Illness, leading to his 
much deplored death in 1903, stood between the design and its 
accomplishment. It has been my privilege, under the orders of 
Government, to supply the missing volume. 

Special acknowledgments are due to my Assistant, Mr. N. R. 
Jogj for valuable aid in preparing the materials.
