Specialist dealers since 1988 in books, photographs, documents, and memorabilia about India, the Durbars, Viceroys, Princes, the Military, and the Honourable East India Company.


SPECIAL NOTICE. Following some large orders received last recently all the Indian categories are very depleted. They are being replenished as soon as possible so please check the website regularly. I am still working from home and during these difficult weeks responses may be a little slower than usual. However our postal service is working very well and orders have been arriving in good time . During these difficult times I hope all customers around the UK and across the World are keeping themselves and their families safe and well. Jeffery Bates. 

Bates and Hindmarch deals primarily in books, photographs, documents and memorabilia of India and the East India Company, with emphasis on Viceroys, Princes of India, Royal & Viceregal Visits, Durbars, and military history. At the moment the business is conducted from a private address with stock kept in a secure store. Visitors can sometimes be received by prior appointment. Website last updated: 30th May 2020.
