About this Item

Folio (370 × 265 mm). Original red cloth, skilfully rebacked to style, lettered in gilt on the front board and with panels in blind and gilt, light cream endpapers. Contemporary ownership inscription of Henry Delves Broughton and the bookplate of his wife, Lady Delves Broughton, to the front pastedown. A little rubbed and soiled, light browning, some light marginal foxing, offsetting to the tissue-guards, very good. Hand-finished tinted lithographic pictorial half-title and 21 similar plates, original tissue-guards intact. First edition. Uncommon plate book recording the five month siege of Mooltan, now Multan in Punjab, Pakistan. The attempt of the British to impose a new ruler on the city led to the defiance of Dewan Mulraj, and to the siege which precipitated the Second Sikh War. The plates include images of the city itself, the participants including "Moolraj" and his brothers, and key moments during the siege, the text offers a reasonably full description of events, partly drawn from Dunlop's own account.
