Hardback reprint of very rare book. Red cloth with dust jacket with small tear at top of spine, no loss. This book is written about the exploits of Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles by his wife Sophia. Notable for its detail and stunning engravings. Raffles was a fascinating man whose adventures as the Lieutenant Governor of British Java were directly responsible for the emergence of colonial Indonesia and Singapore.
