100 pp, oblong 8vo (8 7/8" H x 11" D) - simulated brown leather with gold lettering on spine and gold border on front board. B&w photographs. "Despite the primitive cameras and the cumbersome ancillary equipment early photographers had to use, not to mention the formidable technical problems peculiar to photography in the tropics, much of what has survived of nineteenth-century photography in India is of an exceptionally high standard, comparable with the best of European photography of the same period. The dramatically varied landscapes, the contrasts of opulence and poverty, and the complexity of India's racial and cultural heritage were all potent stimuli to professional and amateur alike. (The author) has selected a magnificent album of photographs (from the India Office Library and Records) illustrating people, places and events in such a way as to convey the quality of life in Victorian India. His authoritative text and captions trace the early progress of photography in the sub-continent and place the photographs, many published now for the first time, in their social and historical context." Several very small glue marks on front pastedown, minor waviness to edges of text block. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, very light edge wrinkling, two tiny edge tears with crease, four light 2" line indentations on front panel.
