Pre 1970s Malay Books

Pre-1970s Books 


Jawi and Rumi Scripts

In Stock

For about a year now I have been sitting on a large pile of  books in the Malay language from the 1950s and 1960s. Some of them are even earlier. I am now going to gradually add them to this page to promote them a bit more. I am very grateful to many who have helped me catalogue these books particularly in helping me transcribe from the Jawi. There may still be mistakes in the transcriptions.If you spot any errors, please email me . If you want to buy any of them, do contact me too. Some of them will be on The Penang Bookshelf's main website - Even if you don't buy any of them, I hope you enjoy some of the really stunning covers.
