Dates of publication from plates.
"Another album of lithographs ... of unknown provenance, with 247 prints is also in the India Office Library. This contains drawings dated between April 1827 and May 1830 ... This volume has large numbers of prints from other sets ... A putative third volume of Indian sports, commenced but never published, may be deduced from the eight plates with similar titles to the published volumes ... with dates of mostly September and October 1829, and September 1830."--Losty.
Each volume consists of a title leaf and 12 plates.
Schwerdt cites the second volume of this work and dates it 1829. Contains further twelve prints.
Lithographed throughout, including title leaves.
