About This Item

New York: GP Putnam, 1927. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Beebe, Director of Tropical Research of the New York Zoological Society at the time of the publication of this book, records his experiences during an extraordinary journey of just over two and a half years to document pheasants in the East. He travelled through the Himalayas to present day Indonesia, Malaya, Sarawak, Burma, China and Japan in the first decade of the 20th century. The account is less a scientific record of pheasant species, but rather a travel diary recording his experiences and the peoples he met. Very Good Hardback. First Edition. 248 pages with an index and many black and white plates. Weight: 1 kg Post free within Malaysia The cover has minor rubbing at some of the edges and a slight shadow over part of the title at the front. The binding is tight, text clear and there is fairly mild tanning throughout.

About The Penang Bookshelf

The Penang Bookshelf was set up in mid 2010 principally to introduce Malaysian residents to the variety of books there is available about the country both past and present. We only stock fiction and non-fiction related to Malaysia and the rest of Asia. Much of our current stock of over a thousand different titles is not available in Malaysia. Conversely much of our stock published in Malaysia is difficult to find outside the country. So if there\'s something Malaysia related that you\'re looking for, do please contact us and we\'ll do our best to help. At present details of most of our stock is not on line; we hope it will be eventually!
