Sixty Years' Life and Adventure in the Far East by John Dill Ross: 2 Vols: 2nd Edition: 1912

Two thick volumes of memoirs of life in the Far East in the Nineteenth Century. The story includes members of his family and begins in Borneo in 1839. The author says he 'set to work to write the story of men and things now vanished, and of a society of which no description yet exists. I believe that I must be one of the few men now living who possess the material necessary to construct such a record as will be found in these volumes.

The books cover, among other places, Singapore, Sulu, Brunei, Labuan, Cebo, Zambuanga, Annam.....Siam and the 'Netherlands Indies'.

Covers good; some foxing throughout; frontispiece of Vol 2 has come away (see photos).

Please take a look at all the photos at full size.
