Asia in those days

Asia in those days


The Social Life of Europeans in Asia from the 16th through the 19th Centuries


Early European life in Asia is illustrated by way of some 450 visual images consisting of photographs, lithographs and copper and steel engravings, each worth a thousand words. Complementing these images with more than 150 extracts from historical travel reports and clippings from the first English language newspapers published by Europeans in Asia the book provides a fascinating glimpse into Those Days in the Far East.
