Sample text

By the mid 1770s he had acquired a substantial collection of books. When he died in 1781, his library was inventoried prior to being sold off under the supervision of Claud Alexander and David Anderson, the administrators of Bogle's estate. The library contained most of the standard works that we associate with Enlightenment Europe. The inventory list begins with "Bacon's works, 5 vols. " 32 We do not know the extent to which Bogle read the books in his library. He may have picked them up in a sale in the same way as other servants of the company bought his books after he died.

The Ascent was at first easy, the way through a wood with some fine groves of first-rate trees," he noted in his journal. "It grew steep, a narrow path zigzagging up the hill. " 85 Bogle actually thought that he was being led by his Bhutanese guides on a high-level circuitous route as a deliberate attempt to conceal from him an easier valley road and so make him think (and report) that the company could not possibly send troops into Bhutan. If this was the case, the Bhutanese were correct in anticipating that Bogle would indeed be interested in scouting out potential invasion routes.

For example, the Panchen Lama was immensely well informed about Tibet, China, Central Asia, and India, and he even knew something of Russia, yet when querying Bogle about England, a place utterly strange to him, he too showed he could think in crude categories. When asking whether England was near Russia, what religion was practiced and so on, the Panchen Lama also "enquired if it were near the country of the cannibals"—thus hinting at some of his credulous notions of far-off places near Fringistan, the home of the Europeans.
