Sketches about Kurrah Mannickpore.
Sketches about Kurrah Mannickpore. by Lieu.t G. Abbott, 15th Reg.t Nat. Inf.y, in the Service of the Honourable East India Company.
[London, Colnagi & Son, 1831.]
10 tinted lithographs (of 11) on india, lacking all text. Each c. 280 x 380mm, 11 x 15". With another lithograph by Abbott from a different series. Some foxing.
A scarce series of views around Manekpore in Gujarat, India, lithographed by Nicholson, with the title by Gauci. The missing plate is apparently the dedication. According to the introduction, not present, this work was published for the benefit of Abbott's widowed mother and younger siblings, "now in England after a long residence in India", issued with the permission of the East India Company. The List of Subscribers (also lacking) lists 150 names suggesting this work is very rare: certainly it is not listed in Abbey Travel. We have not been able to trace the source of the extra plate, 'View Taken from the Top of the Breach in the Long Necked Bastion, Looking towards the Interior of the Fort. Bhurtpoore" (Bharatpur), lithographed by Templeton after Abbott.
