The East India Company's increasing control over Bengal during the 1760s and 1770s brought it eventually into direct contract with the kingdoms of Bhutan, Sikkim and Tibet. As the fortunes of the Company declined in Bengal, the economic significance of the China trade became more apparent. Too overcome the obstacle of China, Tibet offered an obvious alternative with its special access to the Manchu Emperor. This book gives a list of source materials for Tibet, Bhutan and Sikkim in the India Office Library and Records.
