Nice drawings of natural history done at the beginning of the 19th century for William Farquhar. I used this book somewhat in conjunction with my reading of Wallace's Malay Archipelago, although the latter went way beyond the former. Twas still interesting to see period drawings as naturalists would have seen them....rather than the photographs we have today. I had hoped the introduction would have been more insightful. It did introduce me to both Farquhar and Raffles, but not in an overly meaningful way. Clearly the best part of the book are the drawings. Obviously. ( )
