Descripción

The album is complete and in original condition, containing a printed title page [HUTWA-MANJHA MARRIAGE 1910] and 23 large photographs mounted one to a facing page only, sizes varying but generally 9.5 x 10.5 ins or 7.5 x 12ins and similar. The photographs remain in good well toned condition some offsetting to facing pages. Bound in original untitled maroon leather gilt, some wear and the rear top corner affected by worming, which extends in to the last blank pages and the second half of the photograph pages with a very few small pin sized holes in the plates (often just one or two), no worm holes in the first half of the album which includes all the major portrait plates. This was the second Hutwa marriage in two years. In 1908 Maharaja Guru Mahadevesram Prosad Sari (who had succeeded his father at the age of three in 1896) had married the sister of the Maharaja of Manjha [an album of smaller pictures of that marriage was sold in the Christie's Visions of India Sale in 1998] but on this occasion it appears to be the Maharaja of Manjha marrying a princess of the Hutwa family. The photographs (from the front) comprise: the two maharajas seated with a retainer, Manjha standing with a retainer, a similar portrait, the two maharajas with young brothers, a larger group portrait of extended family and sirdars, the maharajas with principal guests [European and Indian], the bride in a palanquin with retainers, etc (4), the elephant procession with lancers, troops, retainers and crowds (4), a line of fourteen waiting elephants with mahouts, the great marriage elephant with ceremonial howdah, a shamiana, views of the palace and grounds (4). Finding these albums complete is increasingly difficult as they have often been raided for the more exciting or valuable images. As is usual at Hindu weddings the women and men are not shown together. Hutwa was a large but relatively obscure state in Bihar close to the Nepalese border. This is a large heavy album which will require extra shipping charges if sent abroad. We have other individual portraits of the Maharaja of Hutwa.
