Abstract

Abstract:

In 1754, Robert Sayer published Jan Van Ryne's views of settlements and forts in South Asia. These prints became the most widely-circulated images of the British East India Company settlements in the mid-eighteenth century, the period in which the Company began seizing territorial power. New evidence of how the prints were advertised to consumers and reproduced in magazines reveals that the prints were presented as polite, genteel images of the British presence in India. This image of the Company settlements was widely available throughout Britain and the American colonies in the early years of the British Empire in Asia.
