The History of Wireless Telegraphy in British North Borneo

-------

Uwe Aranas

The 19th century enterprise of The British North Borneo Company in present day Sabah was instigated mainly by investors in London, so communication between the headquarters and their staff on the ground was vital. In this book the author traces the history of telegraphic communication from the initial laying of cables through the forests to Labuan and then on to the Malay Peninsula. The story concludes with the restoration of communications in the immediate post World War II era. Aranas consulted archives in London and Sabah as well material held by Telefunken and others in Germany to produce this definitive history. New Hardback in a similar Dust Jacket. First edition. 254 pages.
