This is plate 47 from William Hodges' book, 'Select Views in India'. In 1782 Hodges travelled into the Rajmahal Hills on the invitation of Augustus Cleveland, the revenue collector of the district, who was his good friend and patron. Hodges visited the area then known as Jungleterry, a rich green area south of Bhagalpur, describing the hills as "masses of stone piled one on another with large trees growing out of the crevices".
