About this Item: (Kuala Lumpur: Oxford University Press, 1995) 9676530808, 1995. 196 x 124 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. xiii + (i) + 314; map; monochrome illustrations. Fine condition. "Sumatra was a great island of mystery to travellers. The first South-East Asian landfall of sailors from the West since Roman times, it was called 'Gold Land' before Java and the other Indonesian islands had become known outside eastern Asia. Even if nobody in Europe believed Marco Polo's account of people-eaters he encountered there, he revealed the wonders of the island before any other part of the region. Yet, while Sumatra's coasts exported pepper, gold, and camphor to the world, its heart remained a secret, peopled by savage cannibals or by glittering empires, depending on the point of view. Each time an intrepid European travelled over the mountains to the highland plateaus of the Batak and Minangkabau, he believed he was discovering a Shangri-La of unknown civilization. This volume presents the most dramatic accounts of adventurers of many lands. Taken together, they represent an unprecedented journey through Sumatran history through the eyes of outsiders who were often the sole recorders of the island's upheavals.". Seller Inventory # 10091
