India and Malaysia Illustrated 
Bishop JM Thoburn

When he wrote this book Thoburn was responsible for the Methodist Episcopalian missionary activities in India and the Malay Archipelago. The book was born out of his frustration at his fellow missionaries' lack of knowledge about the people's whose souls they wanted to save. So what results is an extensive survey, mainly of India, at the end of the nineteenth century. About 50 pages are devoted to the Straits Settlements. As the author admits himself, the book does have a missionary slant. 562 pages with an index and about 30 black and white plates. Very Good Hardback. First Edition.
