There is little information about Dubourg; the dates of his birth and death are unknown, and even his first name is not well attested. He is known to have contributed coloured aquatints to Thomas Williamson, The European in India London, 1813 and to J. F. Dove, A Picture of St Petersburg London, 1815 , as well as two plates after drawings by Pugin to Edward Wedlake Brayley, Illustrations of Her Majesty's Palace at Brighton London, 1838 and the engravings for Barbara Anne Townshend's delightfully named Sibyl-Leaves, or, Drawing Room Scraps consisting of Groups of Figures, Flowers, Roses, Birds, Butterflies &c presenting a Variety of Studies in the Art of cutting Black Paper, for the Instruction and Amusement of Young Ladies London, 1836 . Views in Rome seems to be the first book that the produced entirely on his own; it consists of 26 aquatints engraved by Dubourg 'with a Descriptive and Historical Account of Each Subject.' He was also responsible for Notable Bridges. A Collection of Engravings of Bridges, showing Construction and Specifications London, 1825.

In his Introduction to Views in Rome Duboug claims that 'the historical and descriptive sketches which accompany these views have been derived from the most recent, and probably the most judicious authorities,' and he ends with an appeal to the authority of Piranesi though his views are in fact quite different from those of the great Venetian '[I]t is presumed there cannot be offered to the public a work more interesting or more worthy of its patronage, than a selection of Views of Temples, Baths, Triumphal Arches, and other magnificent remains of Roman buildings, from the works of the justly celebrated PIRANESI.' (University of Wales Trinity Saint David).
