Marvellous Maharajas May 3, 2008
A truly enchanting book. After reading it I was on the Internet for hours, researching all the various people whose pictures were in it. Highly, highly recommended.
Fascinating and enchanting Mar 18, 2007
Love to look at pictures of this misterious culture and enjoy imagining their lives before the English arrival. Highly recommend it.
An amazing collection of photographs.., Sep 5, 2006
..from a surreal era of Indian history. It was a totally ostentatious and absolutely over the top lifestyle. The pockets of the sub-continent that were these states of princely India were to a degree remnants of the Mughal Empire. It truly must have been a painstaking process to put together all the photographs. But what a collection! Going through this book really takes you back in time, some superb rarely seen photographs. Some of the photographs are from private collections and national archives.
Lavishly illustrated, magnificent book Nov 18, 2005
This is an extraordinary book, with fantastic pictures, some very famous, other belonging to princely familly collections, never seen before.Much better than most of the others on the same subject.
I highly recomend it for anyone interested on Imperial India and the maharajas
