The Straits Times Annual for 1969
Eric Jennings (ed)
Despite Malaysia and Singapore no longer being one country. this edition of the Straits Times annual still has a fair amount of articles about life in Singapore's Northern neighbour. Naturally the highlight in this edition is the celebration of 150 years since the establishing of a British trading post in Singapore. 148 pages with a good selection of colour photographs and advertisements. For further details, please see the scanned contents page. Very Good Paperback. First Edition
Weight 1.3 kg. Post free within Malaysia but will incur additional postage charges when posted elsewhere.
Published by Straits Times Press, Singapore, 1969. First edition.
Condition: The cover is in better condition than most copies of this annual of this vintage because it has been protected by a plastic cover. There is a small amount of curl at the corners and three small staple marks along the top edge. A strip of about an inch wide is missing from the top of the first advertisement page and a couple of other pages have a small nick along the edge. The binding is tight, the text is clear and there is minimal tanning throughout.
