    Bio / His Notes: 
    George Henry Rouse was an English Baptist missionary and Bible translator in India. Born in Suffolk, Rouse became a Baptist at the age of 16, completing his education at Stepney (now Regent's Park) College and London University. In 1861, he journeyed to Calcutta as a missionary for the Baptist Missionary Society, but ill health forced his return to England, where he took up a teaching position at Haverfordwest Baptist College from 1867-1872. He later returned to India as the secretary of the Baptist Indian Mission and the head of the Baptist Mission Press.
    Lucknow was the capital of the former state of Oudh (now spelt Awadh, and a region in the state of Uttar Pradesh), in India. The prolonged defense there by the British proved to be one of the key episodes in the unsuccessful Indian Rebellion of 1857-1858.

In its ideal state, the volume contained 50 tipped-in albumen prints, accompanied by full textual descriptions of each scene depicted, along with a large-sized plan of the city executed by Parogha Ubbas Alli, Assistant Municipal Engineer, who may have been the photographer. Created in part as a memorial to the Garrison of Lucknow and survivors of the Indian Rebellion of 1857-1858 and dedicated to Sir George Couper, Chief Commissioner of Oudh.
