South West of Ootra Durgam - Colour Prints

DESCRIPTION

Ootra Durgam is one of the many strongholds situated throughout the Mysore countryside, where a few determined soldiers can stand up to an army. Colonel Stuart and his detachment were ordered to this location immediately after the capture of Sewan doorg. On the 23rd of December, he camped near it and, after reconnoitring, devised his plan of attack, which was to escalade and take possession of the Pettah first, because the defences on the hill could not be easily battered from any other direction.
This is a copy of the etchings from John William Edy etched Colebrooke?s drawings, which were published as 'Twelve views of sites in the Kingdom of Mysore, the land of Tipu Sultan,from drawings taken on the spot? in London in 1794'. The set was enormously popular, resulting in multiple editions of the series.
