Travels in India, Ceylon and Borneo
Asian Educational Services, 1995 - 272페이지
This edition first published in 1931. Basil Hall's "Fragments of Voyages and Travels "originally appeared in nine volumes. Miscellaneous in their topics, and arranged without any order the volumes re-issued here have been selected for their clarity and interest, both geographical and historical. Few books give a more graphic picture of Britain's nineteenth century Royal Navy, and Hall's work is full of nautical information. Hall was also an indefatigable traveller and a keen observer who learnt Hindustani, Malay and Japanese, studied Hindu mythology, flora, fauna and geology and compiled the first ever vocabulary of the language of the Loo Choo Islands.
