First edition in French, 2 volumes, 8vo, engraved frontispieces, large folding map of Bengal, full contemporary calf gilt, previous owner's embossed stamps and rubberstamps on half-titles; very good copy. Bolts was a Dutch adventurer who entered the Bengal civil service and who got into trouble for private trading in the name of the East India Company. After being deported to England in 1768 he published this attack on the government in Bengal, in a series of arguments questioning the wisdom of the East India Company's management of Indian commerce.
