First edition thus, revised and enlarged from the first edition in book form of 1879. This new edition features extracts from Mowbray Thomson's The Story of Cawnpore (1859) and aims to provide "as complete and interesting a 'record of facts connected with the Cawnpore massacre of 1857', as it is possible for a providentially escaped survivor of that fearful catastrophe to compile in presentable form" (preface). The work was initially published in Calcutta and London Papers in 1857 under the title "Brief account of the Outbreak at Cawnpore", and was reissued in 1862 by the Delhi Gazette as "Narrative of Events at Cawnpore".
