A separate-issue elevated 'view' of Delhi under siege by the East India Company troops in September 1857, part of the Indian Rebellion. It shows the British camp on the Delhi Ridge, and the assault on the Selimgarh Fort, captured on the 16th September. Underneath is a list of distances between Delhi and other cities, including Kabul.
