The English East India Company

Active selection in cart:
The English East India Company. The English, like the Dutch and Portuguese before them, journeyed to the Orient in search of commercial opportunity. This 1675 trading post scene reveals the richness of the franchise granted by Elizabeth to the English East India Company – and for which, eventually, they had to go to war. Original artwork for illustration on p18 of Look and Learn issue no 953 (26 April 1980).
