Tales Of The Malayan Coast

 

Rounsevelle Wildman

Wildman was a US Diplomat based in Singapore at the end of the 19th century when he wrote this book, mainly a collection of reminiscences of his time there and in the state of Johore. While his style of account is fairly simplistic, there are nevertheless insights into both colonial and kampong life that could cause the reader to reflect on what has or hasn't changed in the last 100 years. 347 pages  Good Hardback. First Edition 

Weight 0.7kg. Post free within Malaysia

Published by Lothrop Publishing Company, Boston, USA 1899. Probably first edition

Condition: The gilt titling and illustrations on the cover still look strong, but the cover is marked in a few places by liquid stains. About a dozen pages have been marked by the liquid spill. Otherwise the binding is tight, the text is clear and there is mild tanning throughout.
