During the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century, the Nawwabs of Rampur, the hereditary rulers of Rohilkhand a district some 75 kilometers east of New Delhi, amassed a large collection of books and art, including illustrated books and album paintings. Their collection was given to the people of India after independence.
