Davis discussing that Mr Grant used lithography as his printing technique. In addition is a printed leaflet listing the lithographic series by Mr C.

Publisher: It is believed that two publishing companies were assigned rights to publish Mr Colesworthey Grant’s lithographs at different periods of time. W.Thackery & Co is believed to have had the first contract to publish Grant’s lithographs in Calcutta, whilst T. Ostell & Co is believed to have re-published and sold the prints to subscribers with handwritten signatures of the people in the portraits at the request of Grant.
