Pre-War Images of North Borneo:

A Collection of Postcards Published from
1905-1930 by Phillipe B.Funk of Sandakan
Lim Pitt Kent & Nicholas KM Tan

Opus Publications of Kota Kinabalu have just published Pre-War Images of North Borneo by Lim Pitt Kent and Nicholas KM Tan.  

The authors have managed to gather togetherthe entire collection of 148 postcards in a very handsomely produced book that is likely to quickly become a collectors item. The print run has been limited to 100 numbered copies of a gilt edged special edition and a further 400 copies of the normal edition. The book has been sumptuously produced, being thread sewn and printed on imported 250g German paper of the finest quality.

The Penang Bookshelf has already ordered a few of the copies of the normal edition which should be available for dispatch before the end of the month.

The normal edition will be available from The Penang Bookshelf for RM300 post paid within Malaysia and RM350 (AU$109/EUR86/GBP73/US$115) post paid surface mail internationally. Airmail posting will incur an additional charge.

No order can be confirmed without pre-payment. If you would like a copy of the book please contact The Penang Bookshelf .

There are a few copies of the numbered edition available as well. If you are interested, we can see if we can order a copy for you.
