The Snakes of Malaya
At the time of writing a total of 129 snake species had been identified as living on the Malay Peninsula and Singapore. Tweedie, who was director of the Raffles Museum at he time of publication, noted that very little research on the country's snake population had been done so far and hoped that this book would stimulate further interest. This revised and enlarged edition was published to take into account further research and feedback after the publishing of the first edition in 1954. Good Hardback in a Good Dust Jacket. Second Edition. 143 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.

Condition: The dust jacket is a bit frayed around the edges, but has no significant tears. The inside of the hinge between the front and back covers and the book is beginning to crack, but this has not affected the binding. There are shadows from the dust jacket flaps on the opposite front and rear end papers. A previous owner's personal ex libris stamp is on a front end paper. The binding is tight, the text is clear and there is mild tanning throughout.
