Crowned with the Stars, the Life and Times of Don Carlos Cuarteron, First Prefect of Borneo 1816-1880
While students of European forays into Borneo may be more familiar the interventions of the British and the Dutch, this Biography fills a gap by narrating the exploits of a Spaniard who started out as a sailor, then became a merchant adventurer and ended up becoming a priest who was appointed Priest Apostolic to Borneo by the Pope. His colourful history, often alienating the British, the Spaniards and many others is told here in detail for the first time. 240 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
