55 plates with illustrations from photographs [mainly full plate], vii, 80pp. Original decorative full leather gilt, front board heavily tooled with arms of the state and the ruler, some rubbing and wear at the extremities but generally clean and internally excellent with no previous ownership markings, Dharampur was a state in the Surat Agency of Gujarat, proud of its status as the most senior state in the class receiving a nine gun salute. This work follows the lines of the author’s more frequently encountered work on Jamnagar and is particularly well illustrated. The ruler from 1921 until 1947 was Maharaja Vijai Mohandevji.       jan11/3
