INDIA IN THE AGE OF EMPIRE
The Journals of Michael Pakenham Edgeworth (1812-1881) from the Bodleian Library, Oxford

This project makes available the complete, illustrated, 8,000 page diary of Michael Pakenham Edgeworth from 1828 (just prior to his journey to India) to 1867.

  • Edgeworth served as a member of the Indian Civil Service from 1831 to 1881, from Madras to Lahore;
  • He travelled widely during his time in India and had a keen interest in topography, antiquities, language and customs;
  • His diary charts the expansion of British territoral influence in India and contains material of political and cultural interest;
  • He was the son of R L Edgeworth, scientist and educator, and step-brother of Maria Edgeworth, novelist, and seems to have shared their talent for observation.
