Raffles of the Eastern Isles


CE Wurtzburg 

First published in 1954, this is one of the first more balanced biographies of Sir Stamford Raffles. The author's interest in his subject started when he was based in Singapore as, inter alia, the chairman of the Straits Steamship Company. After he retired, he made a point of collecting everything he could about Raffles, particularly Dutch sources, which had never been consulted in biographies prior to this one. Very Good Paperback Reprint 788 pages.
