A Naturalist in Borneo


Robert WC Shelford

This work, first published in 1916, is the result of Shelford's seven years as Curator of the Sarawak Museum at the end of the 19th century. Although his main interest was insects, particularly cockroaches, this book covers all living species - even 'the natives' get a few pages as an after thought at the end -  that were indigenous to Sarawak at the time. The book includes 32 black and white photographs and line drawings made by the author, who was unable to complete the work before he died at the young age of 39. The book was edited after his death by Edward Poulton. Good Paperback. Reprint 331 pages. Please see the scan of the contents page  for further details. (The scan is of the contents page of the first edition. Hence the spotting.)
