A good to very good copy. Two numerals written on the front pastedown, one crossed through, and the remains of a small label with second of these numbers at the foot of spine. There are no other markings, but another book that came from the same source had a similar number as well as the ink stamp of the Campbell Town Institute in rural Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania), so one assumes this title was also part of its collection. *** Low served Colonial Secretary to (Rajah) James Brooke. He had come to Sarawak to collect plants and seeds, and spent thirty months there, travelling extensively amongst the 'tribes of aborigines'.
