The British royal family has had a long-standing intellectual and artistic relationship with India. Through the exploration of the history of Indian manuscripts in the Royal Collection, this publication offers the reader a new understanding of the developing relationship between the British Crown and India’s royal courts.

Drawing upon the Royal Library’s world-class collection of manuscripts from the Indian subcontinent, these elegant masterpieces comprise a variety of subject matter, from dazzling Mughal durbars to sensuous poetic scenes.

Presenting new scholarship that traces the 400-year history between Britain and India, this book also marks the first time that many of these works have been published.
