Calcutta in the 17th Century

P. Thankappan Nair (Author)
Synopsis Calcutta in the 17th Century is the first volume of a Tercentenary History of Calcutta written by Mr. P.T. Nair. The story of the foundation of Calcutta on August 24, 1690 has been told with the help of authentic records for the first time.

The East India Company's war with the Great Mogol is described in great detail. Designed as a source book as well as a History of Calcutta in the 17 Century, the present volume will be of absorbing interest to all who love Calcutta.
