1907 Handbook to Singapore


GM Reith

A facsimile reprint of the 1907 second edition revised by Walter Makepeace. Reith's original edition was published in 1892. The book was intended as a guide for the European traveller who was expected to be mainly interested in, as Paul Kratoska states in his foreword to this reprint, 'the fruits of the Public Works Department,' i.e. buildings, docks etc. There are also sections on the flora and fauna of the island as well as a brief review of the Malay language. Very Good Paperback. Reprint  133 pages and 25 pages of advertisements of the time, a fold out map of the island and six black and white photographs. 

Weight: 0.4kg. Post free within Malaysia

Condition: The cover has minimal wear. The binding is tight, text clear and there is very faint tanning throughout. A smart copy.
