Collecting an Empire: The East India Company (1600-1900)

Tom Raw mounts an elephant for the first time

As the quintessential instrument of imperial conquest, the British East India Company, with its commercial, political, and aesthetic concerns, tells a rich, conflicted story of engagement between two cultures. This exhibit brings together a diverse, multi-lingual range of Indian and British objects, illuminated mythological manuscripts, maps, letters, official proclamations, diaries, ship logs, company dictionaries, travel journals, novels, and broadsides from various Beinecke Library collections. [ca. 60 items]
