The fort at Satara near Pune, a seat of Maratha power in the 17th and 18th centuries, used as a British cantonment in the 19th. From 'Eight Most Splendid Views of India, sketched by an Officer in the Indian Army', showing hill forts in forts situated in the Western Ghats of Maharashtra, western India. Although Baron Adam Friedel is sometimes quoted as the artist as well as the publisher, it is unlikely that he served as a soldier in India; he was already a successful publisher, particularly of portraits of the leaders of the Greek revolution.
