20th Century Impressions Of British Malaya: Its History, People, Commerce, Industries And Resources
The picture shows the front cover of “20th Century Impressions of British Malaya”. The foreword in the book states that: ...the book follows closely upon the lines of the earlier works of the series on Western Australia, Natal and Ceylon. This volume deals exhaustively with the history, administration, peoples, commerce, industries, and potentialities of the Straits Settlements and the Federated Malay States - territories which, though but comparatively little known hitherto, promise to become of very great commercial importance in the near future. Because of their scattered nature, wide extent, undeveloped condition, and different systems of government, the “adequate treatment of them has presented no little difficulty to the compilers”.
