Emily Innes

Originally published two years after Isabella Bird's The Golden Khersonese in 1885, this book portrays life in late 19th century Malaya through the eyes of a wife of a minor colonial official who lived in the country for nearly six years. By contrast, Bird flitted in and out of the country meeting only sultans and senior officials. Innes lived in a remote settlement chaffing at the pettiness of expatriate life, but managing to record with some accuracy and humour the life she experienced. With an introduction by Khoo Kay Kim. A facsimile reprint. 250 pages. Near Fine Paperback
