About this title

Synopsis:

Illustrated with an unsurpassed collection of paintings and photographs that show not only what the Empire looked like in all the eccentric far-flung magnificence of its apex, but what it meant to the imperialists. The British Empire was one of the most astonishing phenomena of modern history and can be found in every corner of the world.
