The Expedition to Borneo of HMS Dido for the Suppression of Piracy 

-------

Henry Keppel

Keppel, who later rose to become admiral of the British fleet, gained his first captaincy while on service in Southeast Asia. Coincidentally he took command of HMS Dido just at the time James Brooke was establishing himself in Sarawak. This book is Keppel's accounts of his visits to the state before and after Brooke was established as rajah there. Most of the book is not an account of naval actions, but rather a description of the peoples and country he found there. 413 pages including some extracts from Brooke's journal and a fold out map. Fair Hardback. First American Edition
