A lovely collection of engravings, printed on excellent, quality paper. It’s an art book and a must have collectible for connoisseurs with an interest in Indian history. These are beautiful snapshots of India at the end of the eighteenth century and offer an unparalleled glimpse into a long gone time. Each picture is to be savored and it is easy to immerse yourself into the scapes, and you feel like a time traveler. Expensive, but worth it, in my opinion. The views of Delhi with open spaces alone is worth it. The sweetest of nostalgias and perfectly rendered.
