"A very handsome catalog of 14 jewels and jeweled objects... The plates are intensely colored lithographs which were used in Hendley's Indian jewellery, 1906-1909, specifically pl 113... A very rare work, apparently issued only to friends or honored guests of Nawab."--Gemology by J. Sinkankas, entry no. 1529.

"This album illustrates a few pieces of Oriental jewellery from the Dacca Collection, some of which are quite unique, while others are of historical interest. It has been compiled at the suggestion of several friends interested in the subject, and of guests who wished to possess the record as a souvenir of their visit to Dacca."--page face frontispiece.
