The Borneo Story


Henry Longhurst

This is a history of the first 100 years of the Borneo Company, not to be confused with the North Borneo Chartered Company. The Borneo Company, with the backing, rather than the participation, of the Brooke family, was established in London in 1856, mainly to exploit mining possibilities in Sarawak. It later expanded to Thailand and Indonesia before merging with what is now Inchcape Plc. Very Good Hardback in a Good Dust Jacket First Edition 120 pages with some black and white photographs
