First quality reprint of this famous work. Relevant for anybody interested in Anglo Indian affairs and colored plate books of the 19th century Views of Simla was published 1846 to much acclaim as this review, published on 12 September 1846 in The Spectator, shows: Captain Thomas has made sketches of the most striking features of the country round Simla; which have been lithographed in the tinted manner by Messrs. Dickinson and published in a folio volume. They are spirited and effective in style, and drawn on the stone with a freedom that is more agreeable than labored and formal execution; besides being characteristic of the rapid and vigorous pencil of a soldier These views are remarkable ….. Never before and perhaps scarcely after was Simla, the sanatorium of British India and the summer residence of the Governor-General, so well captured, both in lively visuals and the artists notes that accompany his sketches. Captain George Powell Thomas, of the Sixty-fourth Bengal Infantry was one among those highly talented amateur artists whom we owe early Indian landscape views. His are the earliest lithographs of coloured views of the famous hill station. The original book is extremely rare. Studio Orientalia’s reprint is based on a copy from a private library.S Limited edition 200 copies
