The Factory of the English East India Company at Bantam, 1602-1682

 -

 David Kenneth Bassett

Although most students of Southeast Asian history first notice the British East India Company when it set up its outpost in Penang in 1786, the Company had been far from idle in the area in the previous century. This book, based on Company records, traces the history of an outpost set up in Bantam (present day Banten) in Java to compete with both the Dutch and Portuguese in the area. The most significant result from the Company's operations there was to use the factory as a springboard for opening up trade with China. New Hardback. First Edition. 246 pages. For further details please see the scanned contents page.
