Description :Optical print of a Mogul Palace in India. Published by Jacques Chereau, who was a well-known publisher of optical prints, established in rue St. Jacques in Paris.
In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries there were many popular specialty establishments in Paris, Augsburg and London which produced optical viewing devices and special engravings to be viewed through them. In the 18th century the optical print or vue optique came into existence, whose exaggerated converging lines were intended to produce the optical illusion of deep recession. The viewing devices for which these perspective prints were produced consisted of a lens and a mirror, this requiring the use of reversed or mirror-image pictures.

See our article about optical prints !.

The Mughal Empire - or Mogul - was founded in India by Babur, a descendant of Tamerlane, in 1526, the name "Mughal" is derived from the name of the area of origin of the Timurids, the Central Asian steppes once conquered by Genghis Khan and known thereafter as the "Moghulistan": "Land of Mongols". Although early Mughals spoke the language have tchaghataï and maintained Turco-Mongol customs, they had essentially been "persanisés." So they introduced the Persian literature and culture in India, laying the foundations of Indo-Persian culture. The Mughal empire marks the arrival of the Muslim expansion in India. Largely conquered by Sher Shah Suri and lost again during the reign of Humayun, it grows significantly under Akbar, and its growth continues until the end of the reign of Aurangzeb.
After the latter's death in 1707, the empire began a slow, steady decline, while maintaining a certain power for another 150 years. In 1739, he was defeated by an army from Persia led by Nadir Shah. In 1756, the army of Ahmad Shah looted Delhi
