Cameron's Highlands Guide Book.
Kuala Lumpur The Cameron's Highlands Development Committee, 1930. First edition, pp.15, 3 plates, map. A very good copy stapled in original wrappers. Staples rusted. A scarce early guide to the Cameron Highlands which sets out the original terms of leases for residential sites - $500 premium and $5 per acre per annum. Although the Highlands were surveyed in 1885, the Development Committee was not founded until 1926, and the expensive new access road was not completed until late 1930. Early investors did well. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: John Randall (Books of Asia), ABA, ILAB [Rye, East Sussex, United Kingdom]
