Collection of albumen photographs taken from about 1863 to 1870, during the British colonial period, while commercial photographer Samuel Bourne traveled to sites in India, Nepal, Pakistan, the Tibet region, and Burma. Of the 375 prints in the collection, 200 are mounted in three large commercial photograph albums published by the firm Bourne & Shepherd, while the remaining 196 are matted and loose prints; two of these were taken by partner Charles Shepherd, but the majority are attributed to Bourne. Most prints are sized 11 by 9 inches, with a few smaller-size cartes-de-visite. The bulk of the photographs consist of landscapes, but there are also many architectural studies, including many photos of Hindu temples and civic buildings. There are also many fine portraits of varied groups and classes of individuals, male and female, and rural village scenes, as well as images of Bombay and Calcutta. The images were secured using the wet-collodion plate method, often under extreme conditions. Acquired as part of the Archive of Documentary Arts at Duke University
