Coromondel is the Dutch pronunciation of "Karimanal", a village in the Sriharikota island in the north of Pazhavercadu (Pulecat Lake). Pazhavercadu (Pulecat) was an early Dutch settlement along with Masoolipatnam in present-day Andhra Pradesh. There is a Dutch Cemetery belonging to the seventeenth Century at Pulecat. It is said that the first Dutch ship stopped here for fresh drinking water, and upon asking the name of the place Karimanal was spelled as Corimondal (K replaced with C and d inserted). This work by the Reverend Baron Stow of Boston is a short history of the proselytizing of this region from the first Catholic missionaries to the Protestants until the late 1700. The author was never in the region but gathers from data accumulated for this work.
Some damp staining and foxing throughout, lacks the maps, rebound in modern cloth else better than good.
