Sketches in Indian Ink by John Smith Jnr. in 1880
From the Colonial Library of Dignified Irreverence
The Colonial Library of Dignified Irreverence is devoted to the lighter sides of past, and occasionally current, life East of Suez. The series is of questionable literary merit. Various sizes. These travelling companions are well dressed, bound as they are in imperial khaki, solid enough to withstand the roughest Himalayan trek or most strenuous journey on a cruise liner in the Pacific. Hardcover (HC) with gold stamped cover, gilt edges, bookmark and shiraza. Bound to amuse. Limited editions.
Sketches in Indian Ink. Satirical sketches of Anglo-Indian society, and some of its foibles. In the words of the author, 'These pictures are intended ... for people in England who may wish to know how Indian exile acts upon English men and women'.
