Rough Pencillings of a Rough Trip to Rangoon in 1846 by Colesworthy Grant in 1853
Itineraria Asiatica Series - Burma Volume II
Itineraria Asiatica is a series of historical reprints of books containing first-hand descriptions and narratives by travellers in Asia. The books, published by Orchid Press in Bangkok, are paperbacks boxed in beautiful slipcases.
Rough Pencillings of a Rough Trip to Rangoon in 1846 was written by the well known Anglo-Indian artist and draftsman Colesworthy Grant who made his first visit to Burma in 1846, and this report with his pencil drawings has long been completely unavailable. Less than a decade later, he accompanied the large Phayre mission to Burma and made numerous illustrations for that mission's report, but the present work is among the first with illustrations of Rangoon when it was still a small trading post.
