Cambridge Archive Editions is an imprint of Cambridge University Press. This excellent partnership allows Archive Editions, as was, to remain independent of commercial enterprises and to continue to produce work that is unsurpassed in its quality and integrity.
Cambridge Archive Editions conducts original research in government records and other sources. Our aim remains to make available to libraries and scholars historical reference materials which otherwise would remain unknown, difficult to access, or fragmentary.
In many of the existing collections we have included document by document identification, which enables a more efficient study of the material, and original references as an aid to scholars.
Our publications may be seen as one huge library resource, hundreds of thousands of pages of facsimile documents, as well as numerous maps, on the national heritage and political development of many countries.
Our material is particularly rich for the study of boundary formation, claims and disputes. For many years we have specialised in the history of the Middle East and our titles provide an extensive library collection of resources on the modern political development of the Arabian peninsula and the Persian Gulf.
Significant additions to the list also provide material on the Balkans, the Caucasus, South East Asia and the Far East, and we have produced a recent series of work on tribal and ethnic minorities. Facsimile reproduction ensures the historical authenticity of the original documents.
This collection is the largest, with approximately 110 titles. Within this list various alliances between titles create smaller collections that support each other, either from a country- interest, or an historical-political, point of view. Each individual title description includes a hyperlinked list of suggested related titles, and other more general combinations are suggested on the sub menu.
This collection is intended to give a good grounding in the Balkan region, with six titles, particularly concerning boundary issues. Four titles on Armenia, the Caucasus and Russia address further this important area.
This collection covers Japan, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan and, under the title Straits Settlements, Penang, Singapore, Malacca and Labuan. These eight titles provide a sound basis for serious research of East and South-East Asia.
Cambridge University Press, founded by a royal charter granted to the University of Cambridge by King Henry VIII in 1534, is the oldest printer and publisher in the world, having been operating continuously since 1584 and is one of the largest academic publishers globally, its purpose to further the University's objective of advancing learning, knowledge and research.
