A superb series of original photographic images recording the 70th Field Battery's participation in the 1928 Lucknow Horse Show. A rare memorial publication which, if in keeping with other such objects we have encountered would have been produced in tiny numbers primarily for members of the team. In this case perhaps a dozen of fifteen souls. We have found of no other examples appearing for sale. The photographs have an almost surreal quality and show some astonishing horsemanship.

Oblong 4to; 8 silver nitrate photographs from original negatives, stub-mounted on thick card, tissue guards, final photograph with the subjects' names stamped beneath the image in gold; original burgundy cloth, titles to upper board gilt, patterned enpapers, boards a little bowed, tissue guards somewhat creased, some oxidisation to the extremities of the plates, otherwise very good.
