Description

The author named Captain Robert Smith was a Scot who served in India and subsequently settled in Dublin when appointed Athlone pursuivant-at-arms. He is presumably the same Robert Smith renowned for his fine views of Prince of Wales Island which were engraved by William Daniell. The plates are of a high quality depicting a full range of Indian trades and society and also include 2 Burmese subjects.

In the preface the author describes how he made most of the drawings himself along with notes on the spot and accentuated his work with copies of costumes drawn by local artists as well.

12mo. (18.5 x 11 cm approx) [iv] 88pp. 44 fine hand-colored engraved plates.

Colas 2753. Not in Abbey, Tooley or Travis collection; Bobins I 307; Vinet 2195.
