A Calendar of the Court Minutes, etc. of the East India Company, 1635-1639 Originally published in 1907, this is a fascinating and exhaustive collection of the Court Minutes of the East India company that were preserved in the Record Department of the India Office. It contains all recorded discussions on the day to day running of the business and strategy thereof - everything from fines for smuggling, commendations for sharp practice to plots of robbery overheard in taverns. An interesting look into the toil and turmoil of a world-spanning business.
