His book, A Commonplace Journey in Kumaon and round about Rajputana, reviewed in The Journal of the Photographic Society of India (vol. XII, no. 3, March 1899, p. 43): ‘Mr Arthur Caspersz has long been known...as one of the most energetic workers in the interests of amateur photography in India. As Honorary Secretary of the Society [from which post he retired in June 1897], as a member of the Committee, as a valuable coadjutor on Exhibition Executive Sub-Committees, as one of the Judges, as lantern slide lecturer, and as frequent contributor of brightly written articles and artistic pictures - to the pages of the Journal, he is specially well known in the photographic world here.’
The work had originally been published as a series of articles in the society’s journal between 1896 and 1897: Round about Rajputana, to the Journal of the Photographic Society of India, 1896-97, and A commonplace journey in Kumaon, 1897.
