Guide to the Samuel Bourne photographs, circa 1861-circa 1889

Summary

Collection consists of 19th century albumen photographs taken by commercial photographer Samuel Bourne and other partners as they traveled to sites in modern-day India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Burma. Of the 546 prints in the collection, 200 are mounted in three large commercial photograph albums while the remaining 346 are single, loose prints; all were published by the firm Bourne & Shepherd. The majority of the prints range in size from roughly 6x9 to 10x12 inches. Subjects include the vast landscapes of nothern India; landmarks such as temples, rivers and canals, monuments, mountain hostels, and European-built cathedrals and civic structures; rural scenes from villages and tea plantations; and scenes from the cities of Delhi, Bombay (Mumbai), and Calcutta (Kolkata). Almost every print features a few human figures, carefully posed for scale or atmosphere. There are also several dozen ethnic portraits of native inhabitants. A number of images have been attributed to Bourne's partners Charles Shepherd and Colin Murray.

Collection Overview

Collection consists of 19th century albumen photographs taken by commercial photographer Samuel Bourne and other partners as they traveled to sites in modern-day India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Burma. Some of the early images in the collection may also be the work of a predecessor studio, Shepherd & Robertson. Later images in the collection have been identified as the work of Bourne’s successor, Colin Murray. Of the 546 prints in the collection, 200 are mounted in three large, fine photograph albums published by the studio Bourne & Shepherd, while the remaining 346 loose prints are mounted as well as unmounted.

Subjects include the vast landscapes of northern India; landmarks such as temples, rivers and canals, monuments, forts, mountain hostels, and European-built cathedrals and civic structures; rural scenes of villages and tea plantations; and scenes from the cities of Delhi, Bombay (Mumbai), and Calcutta (Kolkata). Almost every print features a few human figures, carefully posed for scale or atmosphere. There are also several dozen group portraits of native inhabitants produced as part of the ethnic studies common to the late 19th century; most have been attributed to Bourne's partner Charles Shepherd. Many of these portraits were published in the eight-volume People of India (1868-1875), and indeed most of them in this collection are on pages taken from these volumes.

The majority of the prints range in size from roughly 6x9 to 10x12 inches, but a handful are smaller cartes-de-visite sizes. The images were secured in the field using the wet-collodion process on 10x12 inch glass plate negatives, often under extreme conditions. Some of the prints were cropped as ovals or in other shapes, but most are rectangular in form. Judging from their backings, many were previously mounted in albums or books.

Arrangement

Contents of the Collection

1. Photographic prints, circa 1861-circa 1889

546 prints, 21 boxes

Negative numbers and titles for the 546 images in the collection are transcribed from the original Bourne & Shepherd studio lists, which have been re-assembled in recent years by historians of photography in India. The original spellings and punctuation have been retained. Where there are gaps in those lists, the titles and numbers are taken from studio inscriptions on the negative or print, or from uncropped prints in other collections. The negative numbers, up to four digits long, have been used to create each print's unique identifier. There are some prints for which the negative numbers or titles are currently unknown; those without a known number have been given a unique identifier composed of UN and a sequential number (e.g., UN042).

The three large brown leather and gilt albums are titled Northern India; Western, Eastern, and Southern India; and Farther India. They hold a total of 200 albumen prints, 191 of which are large-format (from 8x10 to 9x12 inches), mounted one per page; one exception is nine cartes-de-visite mounted on a single page.

The loose single prints are either unmounted or mounted on thin stock in most cases. Typical image sizes range from 7x9 to 10x12 inches, and if the prints are mounted, they are secured to thin stock typically measuring 9x11 to 11x14 inches. Almost all the single prints are housed in modern 16x20 inch window mats.

Many but not all of the prints in the collection are inscribed with negative numbers, short titles, and variants on the studio or photographer's name. The prints in the three albums are presented in random negative number order, but in the collection guide the entries for all the prints, loose as well as album-mounted, are listed in the same sequential negative number order as they appear in the studio’s commercial list.

Specific locations featured in the images include but are not limited to: Agra; Benares (Varanasi); Bombay (Mumbai); areas of Burma (Myanmar); Bhurtpore (Bharatpur); Calcutta (Kolkata); Darjeeling; Delhi; Futtypore Sikri (Fatehpur Sikri); Gwalior; Kashmir; Lucknow; Madura (Madurai); Mussoorie; Nepal; the Neilgherries; Ootacamund (Udagamandalam); Rangoon (Yangon, former capital of Burma); Secundra; and Simla (or Shimla). There are a handful of images featuring posed groups of high-ranking Indian officials and nobility, as well as group portraits of male and female native inhabitants, often accompanied by descriptions of their ethnic group on a leaf of text. Calcutta image #1748 features the Samuel Bourne’s wife, Mary (Tolley) Bourne. Otherwise there are very few images of Europeans in the collection.

Historical Note

Samuel Bourne (1834-1912) was born in Shropshire, England, and began his career in photography around 1855. Bourne sailed for India in 1863, settling in the northern city of Shimla, which served as the launching place for the lengthy trips he took to regions of modern-day India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Burma. One of his trips was devoted to finding and photographing the source of the Ganges in the Himalayas. He co-founded the Bourne & Shepherd studio, which eventually had offices in Simla, Calcutta (Kolkata), and Bombay (Mumbai). Some of the images in the collection may also be the work of an earlier studio, Shepherd & Robertson, formed by Bourne's eventual partner Charles Shepherd. In 1870 Bourne returned permanently to England with his wife, Mary; Charles Shepherd also left India in 1878. Following Bourne's departure from the firm, Colin Murray was hired as chief photographer and then became the firm's manager. Some of the later images in this collection are his work. Back in England, Bourne became a businessman and magistrate, passing away in 1912. Colin Murray died in Calcutta in 1884. The firm Bourne & Shepherd closed in 2016; up until then it was one of the oldest photography firms in the world in continuous operation. The over 2,000 glass plate negatives Bourne left with Shepherd were destroyed in a fire in 1991.
