This lecture announces plans for the first volume in a project to document the history of all of the Indian Princely States based on themes generated by the Robbins collection of paintings, photographs, “popular art”, fiscal and court documents, numismatic and philatelic items and other objects. This study will include topics like the hundreds of tiny states in Western India, states with scattered territories, trade, administration, and relations with British India as well as art and the princes themselves.

Please note that registrations via email are required for this free lecture.
