In the rush to publish commemorative volumes on the 150th anniversary of the founding of the colony of Singapore, this book will probably maintain its importance longer than most. It was written by a couple, who were one of the principal publishers in Singapore at the time, as an academic work, drawing on some unpublished material, but in a readable form. Published under the auspices of the Singapore Chamber of Commerce. Very Good Hardback. Good Dust Jacket. First Edition. 730 pages.
