"The rebellion of 1857 produced a spate of publications, many of which were illustrated books and prints after sketches by army officers. David Scott Dodgson (1822-1898), of the Bengal Infantry, worked with Henry Havelock at the relief of Lucknow. This volume of lithographs, includes many panoramic views of the city, as well as Claude Martin's villa, the Dilkusha Palace, built by Sa'adat Ali Khan, and the British Residency. There is also a plate of the Great Imambara, described as the architectural gem of Lucknow.
