FIRST EDITION. In 1839 the Army of the Indus, including Sir Keith Jackson of the 4th Light Dragoons, sought to replace the pro-Russian Emir of Kabul, Dost Mohammad Khan, with the pro-British Shah Shuja. With the Khyber Pass deemed too dangerous as a means of entering Afghanistan, the Bolan Pass was forced with the objective of capturing both Kandahar and Ghazni en route to Kabul (where Shah Shuja was to be installed at the palace of Bala Hissar). The plates illustrate this campaign. Abbey Travel 506.
