Title: East India Company House in 1817, by Thomas Hosmer Shepherd.
Description: The British headquarters of the East India Company were in Leadenhall Street in London. This engraving was made after the building had been rebuilt in 1799. By 1817 the East India Company, which had held the monopoly of trade with the east since 1600, was coming under attack from the supporters of free trade, and its sole trading rights to India would soon be revoked by the British Parliament.
Creator: Thomas Hosmer Shepherd (artist), Joseph C. Stadler (engraver), Rudolph Ackerman (publisher)
