This copiously annotated bibliography traces the history of the East India Company by examining the printed materials issued during its first 185 years, from the award of Elizabeth I ’s Charter to the passing of William Pitt’s India Act. It is the first large-scale bibliography of the company to be published, describing a huge range of printed items, from Parliamentary Acts to satirical poems.

Included in this bibliography are the company’s own petitions for the regular renewal of its privileges, lists of proprietors, complaints by disaffected employees, the polemics of eighteenth-century pamphleteers, the rousing oratory of Edmund Burke, and practical works on navigation. This is an important new resource for research material on the history of British India and South Asia in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Philip J. Stern, Duke University | H-Net
“This book is a real accomplishment, representing original, painstaking, and enterprising work in an increasingly crowded field of company studies, which will certainly be of great use and interest not only to historians of British India but also to historians of early modern Britain, print culture, political economy, and many more besides. I certainly know it will be one East India Company book sure to be perched conspicuously within reach on my shelf for years to come.”
