Recollections of Manila and the Philippines
These memoirs of a Scottish merchant in the Philippines are based on his stay in Manila for about three years in the mid 1800s. As one might expect, being a businessman, he moved little outside the Hispanicised middle classes, but this record is unusual in that it gives a non Spanish view of privileged life in the country in the last century of Spanish rule. Edited and Annotated by Morton J Netzorg. With an appendix on Trade in Pinay, 1857-67 and Four Letters by Nicholas Loney. 295 pages with an index and five black and white plates. Good Hardback. Reprint. Originally published in 1851
