Publications and Articles

There’s a wealth of resources that document the history of Ceylon tea and also chronicle the general course of history in a compelling narrative. This particular section is devoted to presenting this treasure-trove of historical information.

Principally, the resources featured here fall under three major categories, namely, Ferguson’s Directory, Publications by the Planters Association of Ceylon and Other Publications with exception to the Articles. Of these, Ferguson’s Directory largely chronicles the trade history of Ceylon, each directory covering a particular interval. The publications by the planters’ association of Ceylon chiefly covers the overall developments in the plantation sector. Other publications address a plethora of matter more or less related to the plantation sector.
