About this Item: ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1913 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book.

About this Item: Colombo printed by H. C. Cottle, Government Printer, 1913, 1913. First edition Folio, pp.x, 462, frontispiece. First ten pages foxes. Last ten repaired with tape. A good copy bound in later cloth. A comprehensive collection of 1,485 inscriptions from cemeteries in Sri Lanka, together with biographical details of the subjects compiled from extensive research in other sources. The earliest English inscription dates from 1748, but the great majority are from the nineteenth century. The frontispiece is of Sir John D'Oyly's tomb at Kandy. Cemeteries at Colombo, Kalutara, Negombo, Galle, Matara, Tangulla, Hambantota, Jaffna (including a cousin of William Makepeace Thackeray), Mannar, Batticaloa, Trincomalee (including a brother of Jane Austen), Badulla, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Matale, Anuradhapura and other smaller sites are covered, and Lewis added information on a further 461 individuals not recorded in cemeteries, making this an extremely valuable biographical work on the British in Ceylon and more: "Hidden away under its unattractive title is a store-house of information on every aspect of life in early times" (J. R. T., 'Books on Ceylon', The Journal of the Dutch Burgher Union of Ceylon Vol. 34 No. 1 (July 1944), pp. 6-7). Lewis modelled his work on Leopold Ludovici's Lapidarium Zeylanicum (Colombo, 1877). Lewis entered the Ceylon Civil service in 1877 and rose to become a member of the Executive and legislative Councils. Seller Inventory # 201537

About this Item: Colombo printed by H. C. Cottle, Government Printer, 1913, 1913. First edition Folio, pp.x, 462, frontispiece. A very good copy in the original cloth-backed boards. Front boards a little grubby. Corners worn. Small stamp of National Army Museum on end-papers. A letter from Lewis to Mr Charles Swanzy, who had written correcting some errors in the work, is pasted inside the front cover. Swanzy's ownership inscription is also there. Three typewritten sheets of Errata and Addenda are pasted inside the back cover. A comprehensive collection of 1,485 inscriptions from cemeteries in Sri Lanka, together with biographical details of the subjects compiled from extensive research in other sources. The earliest English inscription dates from 1748, but the great majority are from the nineteenth century. The frontispiece is of Sir John D'Oyly's tomb at Kandy. Cemeteries at Colombo, Kalutara, Negombo, Galle, Matara, Tangulla, Hambantota, Jaffna (including a cousin of William Makepeace Thackeray), Mannar, Batticaloa, Trincomalee (including a brother of Jane Austen), Badulla, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Matale, Anuradhapura and other smaller sites are covered, and Lewis added information on a further 461 individuals not recorded in cemeteries, making this an extremely valuable biographical work on the British in Ceylon and more: "Hidden away under its unattractive title is a store-house of information on every aspect of life in early times" (J. R. T., 'Books on Ceylon', The Journal of the Dutch Burgher Union of Ceylon Vol. 34 No. 1 (July 1944), pp. 6-7). Lewis modelled his work on Leopold Ludovici's Lapidarium Zeylanicum (Colombo, 1877). Lewis entered the Ceylon Civil service in 1877 and rose to become a member of the Executive and legislative Councils. Seller Inventory # 118639
