'Entrance into Caubul from Killa-Kazee', 1840 (c).

Tinted lithograph from bound volume of 26 tinted lithographs, 'Sketches in Afghanistan', 1838-1842, by Louis and Charles Haghe after James Atkinson, published by Henry Graves and Company and J W Allen and Company, 1 July 1842.

This print depicts the moment when the Emir Dost Mohammed surrendered to the British envoy Sir William Hay MacNaghten in November 1840. Apparently, MacNaghten and his aides were out riding in the valley of Qila-Qazi near Kabul when the surrender, which was completely unexpected, occurred. The Emir remained in captivity until the end of the war when he was freed by the British who finally abandoned their attempt to intervene in the internal politics of Afghanistan.
