Descripción

pp135-564. Disbound as a single text block, each report having a separate title page, a clean copy. with no previous ownership marks. This series of Reports (the 2nd also originally printed in 1772 and the other three in 1773) formed part of Volume III of the series of 15 large volumes of important reports which Parliament ordered to be re-printed in 1803. The earlier pages of the large volume contained unrelated reports on assay offices, linen, shipping timber, etc. These reports were an attempt to assess the failings of the Company (particularly financial) and to search for a new method of governing India. At home parliament was incensed at the fortunes being made by returning nabobs (Clive brought home some 2 million pounds). The outcome was the regulating Act of 1775. The reports give details of all the Company's Charters, revolution in favour of Mir Jaffir 1760, conduct of Company servants, Sir Thomas Rumbold, war between the Company and Cossim Ally Cawn, trade in salt, free merchants, receipt of 5 lacs of rupees by Lord Clive, eye-witness accounts of events such as the Black Hole of Calcutta, etc. Size: Large Folio.
