An Account of The Interior Of Ceylon And Of Its Inhabitants With Travels In That Island 
--- 
John Davy

 

Davy was a medical officer attached to the British army at the time when British rule was extended into the interior of the island. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Davy was not only interested in the scenery and superficial behaviour of the inhabitants he met, but also in the structure and nature of society, its religion and customs. So his memoirs remain one of the most thorough descriptions of the last stages of traditional Kandyan culture. Good Paperback in a Good Dust Jacket. Reprint. Originally published in 1821 399 pages with a a few colour plates, some line drawings and an index.
