By Adam Matthew Digital. Covering the development of the East India Company starting with its charter in 1600 to Indian independence in 1947. This collection follows the story of trade with Asia, China, Japan and the Middle East; politics; and the rise and fall of the British Empire. It records the challenges of a globalising world and sheds light on many contrasting narratives – from records of powerful political figures, through to the lives of native populations and the individual traders who lived and worked at the edge of Empire. Material includes charters, deeds, statutes, factory records, letters, military documents, treaties, printed books, trading diaries and financial documents.
This collection from Adam Matthew Digital captures the lives, experiences and colonial encounters of people living at the edges of the Anglophone world from 1650-1920. It ranges across the various colonial frontiers of North America before touching on the settlers and indigenous peoples of Southern Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
