Sampson Low, Marston, & Co., as Ceylon in 1883.

A second edition, under the auspices of the same firm, was called for in a few months, and came out as Ceylon in 1884. The latter volume was out of print for some time before a further issue could be made- but the Queens Jubilee made it very appropriate that a third edition, much enlarged, should appear in 1887, (published by Messrs. John Haddon & Co.) as Ceylon in the Jubilee Year.

So favourably was this enlarged fourth publication received, that out of print was the only answer to numerous inquiries by 1890- and therefore a fifth Edition called Ceylon in 1893 (also published in London) was prepared. This again has long ago been disposed of and so Ceylon in 1903 in a compact form, has been prepared at rather short notice to supply an urgent want for a popular, illustrated, up-to-date Handbook. The Author trusts that this succinct and popular account of what is the most important - whether population, trade, or resources be considered - of Her Majestys Crown Colonies, will be once again found to supply a felt want.

Thrown very much into the form of an Illustrated Handbook for Visitors, this volume will be found by all interested in Ceylon (whether officials, merchants, planters, or home residents with relatives in the island) to contain late and reliable information on a great variety of topics.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
