Following these biographies are sections on British India, the Chinese, the Wahabees, Siberian peoples, "farther India" (Southeast Asia), Malacca (Malaya), Ceylon, and Japan. Because this volume lacks the title page for the set, the date is derived from publisher's information on the back of the wraps.; 7.25" (18.5 cm) tall. Fair with no dust jacket .
