A Gentleman in a public Office, attended by the Crannies or Native Clerks
A Gentleman in a public Office, attended by the Crannies or Native Clerks.
The coloured print, along with a page of description, printed on both sides, comes from a defective and damaged copy of The Costumes and Customs of Modern India by Charles D’Oyley and Capt Thomas Williamson published about 1824 by Edward Orme of Bond Street, London. The page size is 14½ x 10¼ ins but the paper is degraded and chipped at the edges outside the plate marks. The plate, number three from the book, will look very good when trimmed and put into a frame or window mount. The engraving was done by Clark & Dubourg. A full description of the book appears in Abbey Travel 440. The colouring of the plate is especially well done. jan27/3
