Description - The Bombay Country Ships 1790-1833 by Anne Bulley

This study of the Bombay Country ships concentrates on the period 1790-1833 but with special emphasis on the years at the beginning of the nineteenth century when the Bombay merchant fleet was at its zenith. It gives a general picture of the ships and their trade and the men who owned or sailed in them. This private enterprise was made possible by partnership, in the broadest sense, of native British, who had made their careers in India, and native Indians, who had inherited a maritime tradition stretching back to times before the English East India Company had reached India. The picture is built up from a mass of details and references unearthed in the Company's records as well as other sources and books and includes contemporary experiences of sailing in these ships.
