William BOLTS

Etat civil, politique et commerçant du Bengale, ou histoire des conquêtes & de l'administration de la compagnie angloise dans ce pays. Pour servir de suite à l'histoire philosophique et politique

chez Jean Edme Dufour & Philippe Roux., à Maestricht 1778, in 8 (12,5x19,5cm), 199pp. et 170pp., deux tomes reliés en deux volumes.


New edition after the first French (translated by Demeunier) in 1775. Illustrated two frontispieces Eisen (representing slaves under British rule and the British Army in India) and a folding map of India. Full Sheepskin textured contemporary. Smooth back decorated. As part of Volume I missing. Rubbing the back. Volume II joints open tail. Corners lightly bumped. Frontispiece frayed at low margins. It seems, according to a commentary in the book that Bolt himself had written the article on Bengal in the philosophical and political history of the two Indies. Criticism in this book follows in fact that the book of Raynal, namely a denunciation of the exploitation of peoples, slavery, trade ... Bolt was a Dutch adventurer who worked for the East India Company. He was later deported to England where he wrote his book, which remains an important documentation on India in the eighteenth. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
