From Captain George Francklin Atkinson, the celebrated author of Curry and Rice on Forty Plates, comes the iconic The Campaign in India. Atkinson, an officer of the Bengal Engineers in the 1850s, sketched the British response to the Indian Rebellion. Widely denigrated for overlooking the Indian perspective, The Campaign in India is unsurpassed as a record of the English attitude to India at 1857.

A hand-colored copy of the first edition, with 26 views of the First War of Indian Independence. Published immediately following the brutal suppression of the Sepoy Mutiny and depicting troops on the move, "Capture and Death of the Shahzahdas," etc.

Folio (561 x 373mm). Pictorial title and 25 plates on 19 sheets. Publisher’s pictorial red cloth stamped in gilt and blind. This hand-colored version is rare.
