Description

First Edition, Rebound, Very Scarce

A very scarce first edition.

The work of Sir Eyre Coote - an Anglo-Irish military officer and politician - and a number of his associates, P. Amyatt, John Carnac, W. Ellis, S. Batson and H. Verelst.

Coote was given the command of the British East India Company's forces in Bengal, and settled a serious dispute between the Nawab Mir Qasim and a powerful subordinate.

This letter discusses these events, and is focussed upon trade in the region.
