The second edition of Colebrooke's edition of the Amarakosa was published in Serampore in 1825.  The title page reads:

Kosha or Dictionary of the Sungskrita Language by Umura Singha with an English Interpretation and Annotations.

with the vowels in the Skt words italicized.  There's a digitized copy of this in the Digital Library of India.

I don't know the date of the first edition.
