Victorian India in Focus

By Desmond, Ray

London: HM Stationery Office, 1982. First edition. Paperback. Very Good +. In Victorian India, almost as rapidly as in Europe, photography was taken up, by Indians and Europeans, as a profitable professional enterprise and as a fashionable hobby. It was soon realised, too, how valuable its application could be in such serious pursuits as archaeology and ethnography. The author, who is Deputy Librarian at the India Office Library and Records, and a leading authority on early photography in India, became interested in this subject when he saw for the first time the large and varied collection of photographs that the Library holds. From this remarkably rich source he has selected a magnificent album of photographs 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. large paperback. some rubbing and bumping and minor shelfwear. clean pages and tight binding.
