Read pg 148. Interesting imperial propaganda and sycophancy to Curzon , but a good window on the times

" Far-call'd our navies melt away - On dune and headland sinks the fire - Lo, all our pomp of yesterday Is one with Nineveh and Tyre ! "

I like the illustrations!

Indeed India was a golden-bird in its past.

I have these prints, thanks for sharing
