[PHOTOGRAPHY] Sportsman's photographic album containing approximately 85 first-rate photographs of hunting for tiger and other forest game, or for the estuarine crocodile (gharial).
Also included in the album are approximately 25 prints relating to a visit to the Isle of Lundy in 1932 (including studies of puffins, razorbills and guillemots), and several of hunting in Wellington (Shropshire?). On internal evidence, 1929-1939. Leather covers, mounts bound on cords. 11 1/4 x 13 3/4 inches (28.5 x 35 cm), images to 9 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches (23 x 29 cm), one per mount, many captioned on the mounts, a few loose prints. Some wear to album, contents generally fine.
From the mounts, it is clear that the tiger shooting took place in the Roul and Sarhi blocks in Mandla District (Madhya Pradesh), while the many gharial taken come from the rivers of Orissa and West Bengal. Other places identified by captions include Nerbudda River, Salichauka, Sulkum, Saguna, Nanda, Lamehta, Dadpur, Krishnapur, Madhumallay, Karthumallay and Sennamallay Ridge.
