Published 2001 
A compilation of Virtually unknown but outstanding photographs of India. Gathered from collections throughout the world, these extraordinary pictures were taken by British photographers between 1855 and 1911: the picturesque facade of the Empire, and the pageantry of British troops set against a backdrop of ruling native princes and age-old dynasties.  
About the Author

Book Description 
Preface by the Earl Mountbatten of Burma.  
Once again available from Aperture, The Last Empire comprises a brilliant selection of virtually unknown and rare photographs of India taken between 1855 and 1911. Images include the work of the early photographers and adventurers who first recorded the glories of the Himalaya, ancient archaeological wonders, and the picturesque fatade of the British Raj in the subcontinent. This collection represents British views of a land that held romantic and exotic place in the Western imagination.
