SECOND EDITION.  Robert Hyde Colebrooke (c. 1762 - 1808) was a British infantry officer in India who conducted early surveys in Bengal and Mysore before becoming Surveyor General of Bengal, a position he held from 1788 to 1794. Trained in topographical illustration and surveying, the images in this collection were based on his work in Mysore in 1790, and produced in 1794.
