The Golden Chersonese and the Way Thither


Isabella Bird

A facsimile of the 1883 edition. Bird was anything but a casual visitor when she reached Malaya in 1879. She was a tough and experienced traveller in many parts of the world. She therefore had enough of a keen eye for the Malayans, their colonial masters and the environment to produce one of the more evocative accounts of the country in the late 19th century. Good Paperback. Reprint. 384 pages with an index, fold out maps of Perak and the peninsula and appendices of letters written by by Hugh Low and Frank Swettenham. With an introduction by Wang Gangwu
