Sketches in Afghanistan

This fascinating folio lithograph is from James Atkinson’s Sketches in Afghanistan. The work was published in 1842 by Henry Graves in London. Each originally hand-colored plate was mounted on card.

James Atkinson was a doctor and accomplished Persian scholar. He was in the field accompanying the army of the Indus until 1841. His work ultimately became the earliest collection of views of Afghanistan. His experience and time there documented one of the more disastrous and bloody British military campaigns.
