India in the late eighteenth century was a strange mixture of two worlds. From the European looking cities of Calcutta, Madras and Bombay the East India Company exercised control over only a relatively small portion of the country…. The aquatints reproduced here are the fruit of nearly ten years in India, of journeys made over unmapped territory, under threat from wild animals, bandits and local wars – journeys that required courage, resourcefulness, and stamina. Hardback. First edition. Condition: very good.
