Description

The Jeypore Exhibition of 1883 is regarded as among the most important industrial exhibitions of the 19th century, where specimens of the best art work of India were curated.

A permanent "memorial" of the exhibition was produced as a four-part set of illustrated volumes, authored by Hendley and commissioned by the visionary Maharaja of Jaipur. The first volume contained a number of chromolithographs and a general description of the plates in the first three books of the set.

The exhibits detailed in the book include armour, jewellery, carpets, metal, stone and wood inlay work, hookahs, ivory carving and inlay, lacquer ware, pottery, native musical instruments, manuscripts and paintings. Introductory notes for the facsimile edition traces the context of the exhibition and its deep impact over the century that followed it.
