About This Book

An introduction by Professor Hugh Tinker is included in this paperback edition of the 1966 facsimile reprint of the 1856 account of the 1855 British expedition by Arthur Phayre (1812-1885) and Henry Yule (1820-1889) to the Court of Ava. The travellers give a full account of their contracts and journeying. The appendices include a geological account of some of the terrain; the correspondence between the British Resident at Ava and the foreign office in Calcutta; and also memoranda on aspects of the King's regime, Burmese drama, monasteries and architecture. The original watercolour illustrations survive here in smudgy black and white.
