Based largely on field journals Wallace kept during the eight years he spent in Malaysia and Indonesia between 1854 and 1862, this work ranks as the greatest travel book on the region and, in its analysis of the geographical distribution of animals, as one of the most important natural history books of the 19th century.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"One of the great classics of travel literature. It is indeed good news that Oxford University Press has now made available a handsome new edition of the book . . . . Natural scientists and anthropologists, in addition to being entertained, will find a vast store of scientific facts, many of which can no longer be observed firsthand." --Science Books and Films
