About this Item

small 8vo, pp. Light water stain, some very light foxing, some of the cloth on the covers worn off, a good tight copy. This edition was issued without the illustrations and map. "Keppel, a British naval officer who had served in the Opium War, participated in the campaign against the Borneo pirates in 1843-44. During the execution of his orders to protect trade and suppress piracy in the Malacca Straits, he met James Brooke who had received the title of rajah of Sarawak, in perpetuity, from the Sultan of Brunei. The first volume concerns itself with Brooke's exploits in Sarawak from 1838-42, prior to his meeting with Keppel. Brooke attempted to open Borneo for foreign trade and tried to pacify the tribes. As a reward for success in the latter endeavor, he was given his title in 1841. Volume two recounts the military exploits of Brooke, Keppel, and Sir Edward Belcher, who occasionally came to Keppel's aid, gives a geographical overview of Borneo, and includes accounts of the Dyaks, the aboriginal Bornean tribes'" - Hill.
