London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1913. Hardcover. viii, 257p., later printing (originally 1906), several Macmillan ads, blue cloth boards with titling and peacock device gilt. Untrimmed edges, signatures have been opened thoroughly and expertly, a very good copy. Burma the nation, whereas an earlier book by Hall dwelt on the personal psychology of the Burmese (Hall's own distinction).
A member of the occupying British military, Hall grapples with the colonialist dilemma that "a good officer" could not be anything but "disliked by the Burmese." Hall published several mystical religious accounts of Asia, see publisher's ads.
