These rare documents form part of the India Papers collection, an extensive collection of official publications from British India, held by the National Library of Scotland. The digitisation of the medical history volumes was funded by awards from the Wellcome Trust and records the demands placed by both epidemic and endemic diseases on the colonial Indian state and its development of public health in the period from c.1850 to 1920. The reports in this collection reflect the state's efforts to study, understand and control diseases like cholera, plague, malaria and leprosy.
