Post Henty, G.A.: The Tiger of Mysore v1 31 jan 2009

Dick Holland, whose father is supposed to be a captive of Tippoo Saib, goes to India to help him escape. He joins the army under Lord Cornwallis, and takes part in the campaign against Tippoo. Afterwards, he assumes a disguise, enters Seringapatam, the capital of Mysore, rescues Tippoo's harem from a tiger, and is appointed to high office by the tyrant. In this capacity Dick visits the hill fortresses, still in search of his father, and at last he discovers him in the great stronghold of Savandroog. The hazardous rescue through the enemy's country is at length accomplished, and the young fellow's dangerous mission is done.

Original cover, original illustrations, fun overall.

Can I ask where the synopsis came from? Tipu Sultan is generally not looked on as tyrant in India, although the British viewed him as such due to his resistance to their rule.

Sorry I didn't mention that. It was fantasticfiction.co.uk. It must be said that Henty himself is rather balanced in his views and states even that some of these colonial wars were provoked by the Englishmen.
