Henry Yule

This book contains two accounts of British officers involved in the beginnings of British attempts to extend their influence from India into Burma. The book starts with a 46 page Private Journal of Arthur Phayre, a political officer involved in negotiations with King Mindon Min after the British annexation of the province of Pegu. The main part of the book consists of a more detailed account of the mission by Henry Yule, an engineer, Phayre's junior. Yule is more concerned with what he observed of the Burmese Government and people including the history of the country, the functions of Government, religion and geography. 389 pages with over 30 plates and maps including a pull out map attached to the inside back cover. Good Hardback.
