Robert M. Grindlay served the British East India Company from 1804-1820, in India. A self-taught amateur artist, he made many sketches and illustrations recording the landscape and life of early 19th century India. These illustrations were later published and copied in engravings. This book is such a collection of coloured engravings. The topics in the collection usually range from monuments and views of Gujarat, Mumbai, Ellora Caves, Bangalore, etc. Grindlay later went on to establish the ANZ Grindlays Bank.
