About This Item

London: Hering & Remington, 1848. Near Fine. 1 hand-colored lithograph 430 x 527 mm. (image is 264 x 372 mm.; mat is 19.5 x 23.25 inches). The lithograph was created by Robert Carrick (1820-1905) of Day & Son, after James Rattray's drawing. James Rattray (1818-1854) was a lieutenant in the British Bengal Army during the first Anglo-Afghan War, 1839-1842. The sketches he produced were published in 30 plates in Scenery, Inhabitants, & Costumes of Afghaunistan (1847-48). This is plate no. 14, showing two falconers from Kohistan, Khudadard and Guldin, with their hawks. Rattray saw them in September 1841 when they were part of the cavalry escort of his brother, Captain Rattray. Green dealer's label on back of mat from Harold T. Storey, London. Very scarce. In Near Fine Condition: lithograph is clean and bright; minor soiling to mat.
