Drawing upon the wonderfully rich and diverse manuscript collections of the National Library of Scotland this resource will be of great value to all those teaching or researching into the History of South Asia between the foundation of the East India Company in 1615 and the granting of independence to India and Pakistan in 1947.
The sources are extremely varied ranging from the papers of key East India Company representatives and colonial officials to records of daily life in Agra, Bombay, Lahore, and Madras. There are original Indian manuscripts containing histories and literary works, as well as accounts of wars, discussions of Indian Nationalism and papers of tea and coffee planters.
The collection is particularly strong for the 18th and 19th centuries and will be of interest to scholars studying:
Trade and economic development
Travel and antiquities
The growth of Nationalism
Empire and World History
There are also important sources covering Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Malaysia and Singapore.
