Bat-Tala, the term assigned to the printing and publication industry that arose in 19th-century Calcutta (now Kolkata), primarily served the needs of ordinary and semi-literate individuals. It shares a resemblance with London's Grub Street. Despite facing mockery from the emerging literary elite, Bat-Tala literature persisted in the Bengal publishing industry until the close of the 19th century, garnering considerable popularity. This book delves into various facets of Bat-Tala literature and culture, with contributors aiming to illuminate the ascent and decline of the Bat-Tala phenomenon. Additionally, the book features reprints of significant Bat-Tala texts and illustrations, providing valuable resources for earnest readers and researchers.
