Lahore: Illustrated Views of the 19th Century

F.S. Aijazuddin (Author)
Synopsis Anyone intending to write the history of Lahore requires the tenacity of a mountaineer" claims F.S. Aijazuddin, who, in researching this book, followed the route opened by T.H. Thornton and J. Lockwood Kipling in 1876. But working from a bedrock of literary sources did not lead to an easily accessible collection of engravings, prints and illustrations. Many of the original watercolours, drawings and other works by amateur and professional artists in this book come from British collections such as the India Office Library, The National Army Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum. These are supplemented by a collection built up by the author and his wife over a decade of searching. All the visuals are complimented by historical notes that help create an integrated view of Lahore of the 19 century, of which so many adventurous and romantic accounts exist.
