After the capture of Java by the British in 1811, Raffles was appointed Lieutenant Governor of the island, a position he held until 1815. After a two-year interlude in England, he sailed back to the East, and established the city of Singapore in 1819. These volumes, written during his governorship and first published in 1817, contain his monumental survey and history of the island state.

Thomas Stamford Raffles (1781-1826) was the charismatic and persuasive founder of Singapore and Governor of Java. An English adventurer, disobedient employee of the East India Company, utopian imperialist, linguist, zoologist and civil servant, he carved an extraordinary (though brief) life for himself in South East Asia. The tropical, disease-ridden settings of his story are as dramatic as his own trajectory - an obscure young man with no advantages other than talent and obsessive drive, who changed history by establishing - without authority - on the wretchedly unpromising island of Singapore, a settlement which has become a world city. After a turbulent time in the East Indies, Raffles returned to the UK and turned to his other great interests - botany and zoology. He founded London Zoo in 1825, a year before his death. Raffles remains a controversial figure, and in the first biography for over forty years, Victoria Glendinning charts his prodigious rise within the social and historical contexts of his world. His domestic and personal life was vivid and shot through with tragedy. His own end was sad, though his fame immortal2154ocn000196887book19700.70Scott-Kemball, JeuneJavanese shadow puppets: the Raffles collection in the British Museum1778ocn004679918book19000.79Egerton, Hugh EdwardSir Stamford Raffles; England in the Far EastHistoryBiography1716ocn003996328book19260.79Coupland, ReginaldRaffles, 1781-1826History1707ocn005531498book18240.79Raffles, Thomas StamfordStatement of the services of Sir Stamford RafflesHistoryBiography1602ocn000157628book19700.79Fagg, William BullerThe Raffles Gamelan: a historical note1268ocn002858299book18300.81Raffles, SophiaMemoir of the life and public services of Sir Thomas Stamford RafflesHistoryBiography1181ocn316836618book20090.76Noltie, Henry JRaffles' ark redrawn : natural history drawings from the collection of Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles+-+09350876251133ocn005393776book19780.84Archer, MildredThe Raffles drawings in the India Office Library, LondonCatalogs993ocn004692792book19540.92Bastin, John SturgusRaffles' ideas on the land rent system in Java and the Mackenzie Land Tenure Commission993ocn050023871book19990.76Barley, NigelThe Golden sword : Stamford Raffles and the EastExhibition catalogs+-+3790769625324884ocn002559350book19190.79Makepeace, WalterOne hundred years of Singapore, being some account of the capital of the Straits Settlements from its foundation by Sir Stamford Raffles on the 6th February 1819 to the 6th February 1919History+-+5633569625324+-+5633569625324Fri Mar 21 16:02:44 EDT 2014batch34573
