Description:

(22 x 17 inches). 24 uncoloured aquatints by Moffat. Expertly bound to style using half 18th-century diced russia over marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by double gilt fillets, lettered in gilt in the second and third compartments, modern morocco-backed cloth box, spine gilt A fine and very rare album of Moffat's highly important views of India. In its entirety, this album represents the greatest series of aquatint views ever printed in India. We have occasionally been able to offer individual prints by James Moffat, but this is the first album that we have ever encountered: collections such as this are of the greatest rarity. The twenty four plates make up three different series, and were originally assembled in about 1820. All the plates are on laid paper, the majority with watermarks including dates. The three series are probably as follows: a series published in about 1804, a second published in about 1810 and the third group of four plates are from drawings of Gaur by Henry Creighton. Little is known of Moffat. Mildred Archer writes that he 'was a Scotsman living in Calcutta from 1789 to 1815. He appears to have learnt his profession of painting and engraving in India. In 1798 and from 1805 to 1810 he produced views of towns on the Ganges and Hooghly, and in 1808 engravings from Henry Creighton's drawings of Gaur.' The plates are bound and titled as follows: 1.`View of a Mosque at Chunar,' I.Moffat. sculp.1810 (watermarked 'S.Wise & Patch 1807') 2.'View of the large pagoda at Nuddea,' drawn and engraved by I. Moffat (watermarked 'J. Whatman 1804') 3.'View of Agra, on the River Jumna,' I.Moffat, sculpt.
