G.C.V Srinivasachari was a school teacher who founded The Madras Oriental Dramatic Company in 1875, a time when dramatic societies were flourishing. In 1880 Srinivasachari produced and played the title role in a Tamil translation of Shakuntala. This version of Harischandra was written for the Jagannadha Vilasini Dramatic company of Vijayanagaram (founded 1874) whose Rajahs were strong supporters of the arts. Scarce. OCLC and RLIN show no copies. A single copy is in the British Library. A good copy, joints split, worn and chipped at edges of boards, repair at tail of spine, worm holes on boards mainly to the edges (with some loss at upper fore corner), and leaves, primarily to first few and last few, then one of two tiny holes; but in all cases marginal and not affecting text.
