This book, first published in 1926, is neither a catalogue of libraries and record offices, no is it a selection of transcripts from the English and Indian archives. The object of the undertaking is two-fold: in the first place, it looks at supplying a critical analysis of essential data for the study of seventeenth-century British India; in the second place, it looks at bringing within one purview all the materials lying scattered in various record offices. Every important document has been subjected to a close and careful scrutiny, and references have been given to printed works that throw further light on the subject.
