While a lieutenant of the Royal Artillery, Captain Sir Henry Chamberlain visited his father in Brazil in 1819-20. While there, he painted a series of views and costumes of the city and neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The University of Oxford Centre for Brazilian Studies has an album of drawings by him, done during the years 1819 and 1820, with descriptive explanations. His watercolors formed the basis of a famous album of lithographs, each accompanied by a detailed explanation of the particular subject, entitled Views and Costumes of the City and Neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro.

He tried to illustrate the entire range of Rio de Janeiro society, including slaves working on the streets. This book is one of the most beautiful and also one of the rarest books published on Brazil in the 19th century (Borba de Moraes). This work contains landscapes, architectural and sociological scenes and harbor views. Originally issue in parts. 36 hand colored aquatint plates, including 5 folding panoramic views.


Borba de Moraes p.178; Tooley 136; Abbey Travel 707; Bobins 8.
