Peeps at Many Lands: British North Borneo

-------

LWW Gudgeon

An introduction to what was then British North Borneo, currently Sabah, for British children in the early 20th century who were curious as to what life was like in the far flung parts of empire. Despite the patronising tone and the cringe worthy abundance of stereotypes, e.g. "a Chinaman was born for work and a Malay was born for play", the book is probably a fairly accurate view of what most British visitors thought of Sabah at that time. 88 pages plus 11 colour illustrations (one is missing). For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
