Tidemarks is a record of the author’s travels around Southeast Asia, and mentions Batavia, Jogjakarta, Macassar, and Singapore, amongst other places in the region. A deeply prejudiced account with convoluted writing. Should be shredded, except as a reminder of the attitudes of colonialists who truly saw themselves as masters of the human race. Its only worth is as a record of the landscape of the Malay Archipelago of the time, which is quite interesting.
