XL,222; 240 pp. First French edition; first published in English in London in 1773. - Willem Bolts (c. 1740-1808) was a Dutch adventurer who entered the English East India Company in Bengal, and got into trouble for private trading in the name of the East India Company. The government of Benares sent him off to England as a prisoner. He sought legal action against them, but ruined himself in the proces. This vigorous exchange of views developed into a bitter controversy and played an important part in fuelling the extensive public debate that was taking place on the subject of the East India Company's operations in India. The French translation was made by Jean Nicolas Demeunier. - Pasted in is a letter in French, dated 1776, dealing with the ceding of Benares by the Rajah to the English East India Company.Cox I, p.299; Chadenat 2791.
