Publication: Early Photographs of India

Pagoda Tree Press has just published a new book: 'Early Photographs of Ladakh'. This republishes two important early photographic works: 'From Simla through Ladac & Cashmere' by Captain Robert Melville Clarke originally published in 1862; together with 'Description of a Mystic Play, as Performed in Ladak, Zascar &c.' by Captain H. H. Godwin-Austen; with Photographic Illustrations by Captain Alexander Brodie Melville, which was first published in 1865. These two works between them, contain the earliest known photographs ever taken in Ladakh, between 1861 and 1864. Full details are available at:
