The Malabar-Bombay Timber Trade 1792-1823

Sheela Mohan Nabar (Author)
Synopsis India for centuries has attracted foreigners because of its wealth and natural resources. Since the seventeenth century, there existed a keen competition among European Maritime powers to trade with India. The first among the Europeans to reach the shores of Kerala were the Portuguese. They were followed by the Dutch, the French and then the British. The English East India Company began its trade with India in 1600. Within a span of one hundred and fifty years, it acquired territorial control in different parts of India. Author's present study deals with the East India Company's Timber Trade that was carried on between the Malabar Province and the Bombay Town between 1792 and 1823. His study further deals with the shipbuilding industry that flourished in Bombay because of the timber procured from the Malabar. His concern is to locate the trading networks that developed between these two important regions.
