Indian Empire Printed Collection
In the 1920s, the Library acquired an extensive collection of printed research material for the history of India in the 18th and 19th centuries.
It includes state papers, government reports and publications, many of which, printed in remote parts of India, would have been unprocurable without the generous assistance of successive holders of the office of Secretary of State for India.
For the history of the East India Company and Warren Hastings the material is especially rich, about 1,000 items in all.
- the Grey (Stamford) of Dunham Massey papers
- the East India Company papers
- the Jackson Family papers
- the Melville papers
- the Thomas Munro papers
- the Pitt Collection
Recorded in general printed-book catalogue.
