I had never been in the country, and possessed only the most superficial knowledge of its history or geography, and I foresaw that the task would prove an exacting one- but, had I realised at the outset how vast the country really is, how many difficulties of various kinds would confront me, and the utter hopelessness of ever accomplishing a tithe of the obligations which such a country as Burma would inevitably impose upon its delineator, I should hardly have dared to assume the responsibility.Now, however, that it is finished, I offer no apology for my work.

It has been my aim throughout to approach my subject with an open mind, to find out the country for myself and to depict it as it appears to the eye of a stranger.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
