The Expedition to Borneo of HMS Dido for the Suppression of Piracy
Keppel, who later rose to become admiral of the British fleet, gained his first captaincy while on service in Southeast Asia. Coincidentally he took command of H.M.S. Dido just at the time James Brooke was establishing himself in Sarawak. This book is Keppel's accounts of his visits to the state before and after Brooke was established as rajah there. Most of the book is not an account of naval actions, but rather a description of the peoples and country he found there. This is facsimile reproduction of the two volume set, originally published in 1846. 338 and xxviii pages (volume I) 237 and cx pages (Volume 2) including two pull out maps
