  • 1999. The classic work on the period is generally considered to be Hosea Ballou Morse's Chronicle of the East India Company Trading with China, 1635-1834. In this, Morse attempted to cover the whole of the East India Company's monopolisation of Britain's trade with China from 1634 onwards. However, his coverage of the subject was uneven, and so his treatment of the period of the later 18th and early 19th Century dealings between the East India Company and China are usefully complemented by this set
