Wanderings in the Great Forests of Borneo
Beccari was an Italian botanist who roamed about Borneo at the end of the first Brooke's time there. While the book is mainly concerned with recording Borneo's unique wildlife habitat before the developments of the 20th century, it also gives useful insights into life in Sarawak at the end of the rule of the first Rajah Brooke. This is a facsimile reprint of the original with over sixty black and white plates and line drawings and three maps. Although there's obviously lots of botanical information in the account of his wanderings that forms the main part of the book, Beccari ends the book with a 40 page appendix on the Bornean Rain Forest itself. Very Good Paperback 424 pages including an index.
