The Durbar (Paperback)
The Durbar', originally published in 1903, is one of Mortimer Menpes and Dorothy Menpes's first collaborations. Featuring 100 colour prints of Mortimer Menpes's beautiful watercolour paintings with Dorothy's transcribed anecdotes it provides an illustrated record of the commemoration in Delhi of the coronation of King Edward VII. Mortimer Luddington Menpes (1855 - 1938), was an Australian-born British painter, author, and illustrator. This classic work is being republished now in a new colour edition and includes Flora Annie Steel's Short story 'At the Great Durbar'.
