Description

A very rare complete set of 10 hand colored aquatint views after James Kershaw, depicting the aftermath of the First Anglo-Burmese War (1824-26). Kershaw was a member of the invading forces who made drawings of the journey between Rangoon and the capital.

Two volumes comprising a 4to text volume and atlas in oblong folio.

Very rare, only complete copy in the auction records of the last 50 years: a presentation copy from Kershaw to Ms. Page.

Oblong folio (approx. 598 x 469mm; 478 x 351mm to platemarks). 10 hand-colored aquatints by Daniell after Kershaw, loosely mounted under mats (uniformly toned within margins; some spotting and light staining).
