In Court and Kampung
The tone of Clifford's sketches of life in 19th century Malaya is set by the first sentence of his preface to this book - 'The nineteen tales and sketches, which are enclosed within the covers of this book, relate to certain brown men and obscure things in a distant and very little known corner of the Earth.' In other words it's one man's view of what life was like 'from the inside' living amongst people who were 'still in a state of original sin.' The book was originally published as ' In Court and Kampong' in 1897 Very Good Paperback Reprint of the 1927 edition . 219 page with 12 black and white plates from the period.
