An important book on the early history of British Malaya, written with a decidedly Imperial bias, but readable for all that. The copy has an armorial bookplate, at the top of which there is a dog's head surmounting a knight's helmet, and, at the top, the significant date 1611. Beneath the shield are the words "Deo - Dante - Dedi" and "AEdes Carthusianae" and the plate is signed below by F. G. Hamnett, H.L. (House of Lords?). The plate is that of the Charterhouse School, at Godalming, in Surrey, which was founded in 1611 by Thomas Sutton on the site of an old Carthusian monastery. ( )
