Historical Collections Available

  • NEW! North America

  • "America and Great Britain: Diplomatic Relations 1775-1815" is the first Cambridge Archive Editions collection covering North America. It is also the first full color collection. By presenting these documents electronically and in color, much older documents can be reproduced. Color images show the contrast between the copperplate handwriting, often in a brown-based ink, on sepia colored stock.

  • Near & Middle East

  • Britain has a rich history with Middle Eastern countries via its East India Company trade routes up through the Persian Gulf. The British archives have particularly deep veins of material on boundary formation, tribal relations, state development and political relations.

  • Slavic, Balkan & Caucasus

  • Eleven titles in 39 volumes, including maps, covering political and ethnic boundary issues in Albania, Kosovo, Armenia, Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, and Greece. This valuable historical collection also covers the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, and oil resources in Russia and the Caucasus.

  • East & South East Asia

  • Covering the geographic areas of Japan, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan and, under the title Straits Settlements, Penang, Singapore, Malacca and Labuan. These titles deliver insight with historic political and economic reports and a sound basis for research of East and South-East Asia.
