The first section is dictated by Edward Clive Bayley to his wife, Lady Emily, and deals with his childhood years in Russia, then moves on to India. It is accompanied by seven 100x145mm, and eight 63x88mm, view of Russia. The second section is dictated by Lady Emily, beginning her story when she is 17 and moves to India, and also including her time spent in England. It is accompanied by 4 sepia photographs, 150x205mm, showing interior and exterior views of a sprawling Delhi home. Sir Edward Clive Bayley was an antiquary and administrator in India, employed at East India College, Haileybury, in Bengal civil service, in Meerut, in Gujarat, and in Punjab. He arrived in India in 1842, where he met and married Emily Metcalf in 1850; they had 13 children, to whom this volume is dedicated. The couple returned to England so that Edward could study law, then returned to India on the outbreak of the uprising -- in September, Edward was ordered to Allhabad to assist John Peter Grant in his provisional goverment of the Central Provinces. Thereafter Edward served in a judicial capacity in Benares, Azamargh, Allahabad, and Agra. He was a respected antiquarian and the foremost authority on India numismatics. Lady Emily returned to England with her husband upon his retirement in 1878, where she worked on their memoirs, a portion of them published as "The Golden Calm" in 1980 (and SOLD WITH a copy, cloth in dust jacket).
