Description

(INDIA) THE JOURNAL OF INDIAN ART AND INDUSTRY
Volume 1, no. 1, contiguous to Volume 9, no. 72. London: W. Griggs; Calcutta: Thacker, Spink, 1884-1900.

Nos. 1-73 bound in 9 vols. Folio, original printed wraps bound in library cloth. With over 925 plates, many in color and double page. The present set comprises the first nine volumes of the Journal of Indian Art. The series, printed in 17 volumes between the years 1884 and 1917 under the patronage of the Indian Government, combined essays of leading scholars, such as George M. Birdwood and John Lockwood Kipling, with photo- and chromolithographic illustrations of pottery, metalwork, jewelry, architectural details, tapestries and textiles, many with gold and silver overprinting. The journal, especially the early issues, outlines a series of debates that occurred in the latter half of the nineteenth-century pertaining to colonial art history and the differentiation between "industrial" and "traditional" arts in India. Rubbing to boards with some loss at heads and tails of spines and corners; otherwise interiors, including original wraps and chromolithograph plates, are in very fine condition.
