Sejarah Melayu/Malay Annals


CC Brown (Trans)

As Brown states in his preface, The Malay Annals/Sejarah Melayu are considered to be one of the finest pieces of literature in the Malay language. It chronicles the history of the Melaka sultanate from its founding until it succumbed to the Portuguese in 1511. The translation is based on the the version acquired by Stamford Raffles, known as Raffles MS no.18 or Raffles Manuscript 18, which is considered the oldest and most faithful to the original. Good Hardback in a similar dust jacket.  Reprinted from Volume 25, Parts 2 & 3 of the Journal of the Malayan Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society. 273 pages.
