British colonialism in the East was initiated by the privately owned East India Company. While most accounts of the Company deal with its trade, conquests and settlements, the contributors to this book concentrate on the Company's impact on the environment in the countries they visited. Many employees were meticulous in recording the weather, soils, flora and fauna and much else that is invaluable to modern scientists. New Hardback. First Edition. 297 pages with a few black and white plates, tables, a bibliography and an index.
