A visit to the Indian Archipelago, in H.M. ship Maeander : with portions of the private journal of Sir James Brooke. Vol. I

This is the first of two volumes detailing the journey to the Indian Archipelago by Sir Henry Keppel. He describes the places they visited, including Singapore, the local people and their customs, flora and fauna, fighting in Macao and the destruction of pirate fleets in Borneo. The controversy over the suppression of piracy by Sir James Brooke in Borneo is dealt in detail in the last four chapters, especially the rebuttal of the views on the subject expressed by Mr Hume.
