Fine Collection of 19th century photographs
A fine quality collection of 19th century photographs of India by Samuel Bourne taken between 1864 and 1866. All are individual photographs from a presentation album dated March 1868. The photographs have been removed from the backing boards and are now in archival mats. English photographer Samuel Bourne arrived in India in January 1863, and for the next seven years traveled India extensively taking exquisite photographs. He ventured deep into the Himalayas and Kashmir photographing sights that even today, few people have ever seen.
