Biographical Dictionary of Mercantile Personalities of Penang
Despite Penang ceding its place as the premier trading centre on the Malayan Peninsula to Singapore in the mid-19th century and then also to Kuala Lumpur later in the same century, it still plays a vibrant trading role not only within, but also outside the peninsula. This book gives us a brief insight into the lives of 200 personalities living between the late 18th century and mid 20th century who gave Penang its strong trading reputation. 226 pages with a bibliography, an index and a few black and white photos.
