Myanmar, at a (beautiful) glance

While visiting her hometown of Salisbury a while back, my wife visited an antiquarian bookstore and picked out a book for me: A 1908 volume simply entitled “Burma,” by one R. Talbot Kelly, a veteran of the “British Raj,” a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and commander of the vessel Medjidieh. Kelly’s little book is delightful, part of a series endearingly entitled “Peeps at Many Lands.” Early on, he tells readers that his purpose is “to tell something about Burma, a country, which, though one of the most interesting and beautiful in the world, is comparatively little known to the majority of people.”
