The Princes & Chiefs of India.

It has taken me a year or so to persuade my Father to sell me his three volume set of "Princes and Chiefs of India". As soon as a deal was agreed this morning I despatched Rachel, my PA to his house to collect them, before he could change his mind!

Some of you will have seen that we used some of the plates from this book to illustrate the princes in our history, "In Pursuit of the Best Gun' and others, who have bought 'Maharajah' guns from us in the past may well have had the accompanying photograph to show what the original owner looked like.

The Indian Maharajah's played an extremely important and pivotal part in the life of the English gunmaker and it is with that in mind why I have always wanted this volume on the Princes as a reference, many of whom I will be introducing to you in the months ahead!
