Reflections of a Curious Victorian Lady in North Borneo : 
The Short Stories of Ada Blanche Pryer 

--- 

June Adeline Corpuz

Ada Pryer, was the wife of the first British Resident of Sandakan, North Borneo (now Sabah). Fortunately rather than complain or just being resigned to her lot, as could be said by many of her British contemporaries, she had an avid curiosity as to what was happening around her and committed her observations to paper. In this book Corpuz collects together both Ada Pryer's short stories and articles, many of which have not been published before, to reveal insights, unlike many of her male white contemporaries, into the complex community where she had settled. New Hardback in a New Dust Jacket. First Edition. with maps, contemporary watercolours and the author's own prints.
