From the Colonial Library of Dignified Irreverence
The Colonial Library of Dignified Irreverence is devoted to the lighter sides of past, and occasionally current, life East of Suez. The series is of questionable literary merit. Various sizes. These travelling companions are well dressed, bound as they are in imperial khaki, solid enough to withstand the roughest Himalayan trek or most strenuous journey on a cruise liner in the Pacific. Hardcover (HC) with gold stamped cover, gilt edges, bookmark and shiraza. Bound to amuse. Limited editions.
Ballads of Burma. A collection of 37 poems, (described as 'ditties'), on 19th. century colonial life in Burma, and originally published in the Rangoon Gazette and the Burma Critic. Some reflect the author's views of the 'unjust treatment of Burma at the hands of the Indian government'.
