India & Punjab – 1911 Delhi Durbar & Royal Tour of 1912 Albums - Two very large albums of the Delhi Durbar of 1911, compiled by C.B. Bayley, containing over 200 original press cuttings neatly pasted and annotated in hand of every newspaper of the day, with prints and large albumen photograph pasted on the page. An incredible record of the famous visit of King George V and his wife Queen Mary in December 1911 as Emperor and Empress of India, and followed on by their Royal Tour of India. An unparallel collection and scrapbook bound in large red leather, rather worn, with one cover missing. A fantastic record for any library or reference source.
