For Oriental Field Sports, 'the most beautiful book on Indian sport in existence' (Schwerdt).

Captain Williamson was an extremely talented amateur artist who had built up a fine collection of sketches suitable for turning in to aquatint. He teamed up with Howett - a notable sportsman as well as an industrious engraver of animals to produce this magnificent work, widely considered to contain the finest images of field sports of the Orient. By their very nature aquatint books were always very expensive, but the British public had a great curiosity about India and Williamson's work helped satisfy this desire to know more about the customs of Britain's new addition to the empire.

Aquatint engraving with original hand-colour. Dimensions: 375 by 495mm. (14.75 by 19.50 inches).
