About this Item: Asian Educational Services. New Delhi. (1840) 1994 facsimile rep. Two volumes. Ppiv,xxiv,423;ii,viii,356. B/w illustrations. Pictorial full bonded leather. Vol II severely damaged but no loss of text, Vol I very good. An extensive and detailed account of Ceylon at the beginning of the nineteenth century by an enthusiast. The entire history of Ceylon is dealt with, as is British involvement to the time of publication. The author describes the country in detail with many observations of the Ceylonese themselves and their legends. Lots and lots on elephants, elephant catching and elephant hunting with a certain amount of crocodile shooting, and incidental game birds here and there. Volume II follows the same pattern as Volume I, but deals with other parts of the country. Colonial history in Volume II covers Portuguese and Dutch involvement, with a chapter on the aboriginal Veddahs, buddhism and another on the Sinhalese language and literature. Tamil seems to barely get a mention. A two volume set in matching bindings. . Seller Inventory # 28097
