Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. 546 About the Book :- A well detailed volume on the natural history of Ceylon. It categories the mammals and gives their description and habits. A significant portion of the book has been devoted to the study of elephants; it gives an in-depth study about its life, its habits, its structure and notes on the methods of capturing and taming it. The last chapter of the book deals with mollusks with narratives and anecdotes illustrative of the habit and instincts of the mammalia, birds, reptiles, fishes, insects etc. A considerable portion of the contents of the present volume formed the zoological section of a much more comprehensive work recently published, on the history and present condition of Ceylon. This book is a reprint of the 1861 edition. But this Operation necessarily diminished the general interest of the subjects treated, as well by the omission of incidents which would otherwise have been retained. The subject matter of the book is good with fine pictures to make it very interesting. About the Author :- Sir James Emerson Tennent, 1st Baronet FRS was a British politician and traveller born in Ireland. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society on 5th June 1862. In 1845 he was knighted and appointed colonial secretary of Ceylon, where he remained till 1850. While he was there, an economic depression in the United Kingdom severely affected the local coffee and cinnamon industry. Planters and merchants clamoured for a reduction of export duties. Tennent therefore recommended to Earl Grey, Secretary of State for Colonies in London that taxation should be radically shifted from indirect taxation to direct taxation, which proposal was accepted. It was decided to abolish the export duties on coffee and reduce the export duty on cinnamon leaving a deficit of 40,000 Sterling which was to be met by direct taxes on the people. This was one of the causes of the Matale Rebellion of 1848. The Title 'Sketches Of The Natural History Of Ceylon: With Narratives And Anecdotes written/authored/edited by J. Emerson Tennent', published in the year 2020. The ISBN 9788121240314 is assigned to the Paperback version of this title. This book has total of pp. 546 (Pages).
