DESCRIPTION

HINDOSTAN - Its landscapes, palaces, temples and tombs By Emma Roberts Published by Fisher, Son & Co., London - 1845 Volume 2 Emma Roberts (1794–1840) was an English poet and travel writer. After the death of her mother left her with limited means, Roberts accompanied her married sister to Bengal where her brother- in-law was stationed. After her sister’s death, Roberts relocated to Calcutta and began writing for the Oriental Observer. She returned to England in 1832 when her own health began to fail, but came back to India in 1839. This time she took up residence in Bombay, traveling and writing for the Asiatic Journal. In 1840 she fell ill suddenly and died. Roberts’ Hindustan is a vivid description of her travels through Northern India. Roberts was considered perhaps the most accomplished female traveler of the era, and while she was fascinated with India’s exotic landscape, she also described it as a place of death and decay. Her work was incredibly influential among British audiences and helped to characterize India as a place of great duality. Credit: University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) Library

MUGHAL IMAGES

The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
