Tales of Old Singapore
This isn't exactly a history, but a collection of historical titbits about the island from 3rd century Chinese record of a place called Pu Luo Chung until the establishment of Singapore as an independent state sixteen centuries later. This 170 page book contains enough black and white and colour illustrations as well as a wealth of facts that will make you want to dip into the book frequently. Unusually, for a generally light hearted book, there is also a six page bibliography to set you searching for more. Very Good Paperback
