Issued in fifteen parts, 1812--13, in continuous pagination and a 'Supplement', 1813; the upper wrapper of the Supplement carries the binder's instructions for the whole set. Subsequently published together in a single volume having the title Papers respecting the negociation with His Majesty's ministers for a renewal of the East-India Company's exclusive privileges, for a further term after the 1st March 1814 together with a copy of the Bill as passed by the Hon. the House of Commons and the Right Hon. the House of Lords, for continuing in the East-India Company, for a further term, the possession of the British territories in India, together with certain exclusive privileges; for establishing further regulations for the government of the said territories, and the better administration of justice within the same; and for regulating the trade to, and from, the places within the limits of the said Company's charter, 1813. The Bill enacting into law the renewal of the privileges is given in full in pt. XIII [Great Britain. Public General Acts 53. Geo. III.c. 155]. The existing privilege at the commencement of these negotiations went back to 1793 and the previous 'negociations for the renewal of the East-India Company's exclusive trade'. Soane's architectural and proprietorial interests in the East India Company are indicated extensively in G. Darley, John Soane, an accidental architect, 1999, pp. 131-133 etc.
