Splendours of the Subcontinent : A Prince's Tour of India, 1875-6
A very good used copy of the Queen's Gallery exhibition catalogue all about 19th century Indian craft.
In October 1875, Edward VII, then Prince of Wales, set off on an eight month tour of the Indian subcontinent, during which he was presented with a wide array of beautiful gifts.
This fascinating publication presents the reader with a wide-ranging selection of South Asian works of art, which not only tell the story of the future king’s tour but also the history of these intriguing objects.
