"Enter the world of late eighteenth century India... James Wales: artist, antiquarian and explorer extraordinary, travelled to India from Scotland in the last decade of the eighteenth century. His work left lasting images of the world of those times, through pictures, letters, observations and travelogues. As a pioneering archaeologist, a painter of giant oils and scores of sketches, his voyage of discovery was rudely interrupted by fate. Two centuries later his work is brought to life in over 200 paintings through his own journals, sketches, notes and pictures"-- page 4 of bookjacket.
