rare original manuscript 1939 MALARIA IN BORNEO MALAYSIA DR. MacArthur SIGNED, estate of William Keith
DescriptionShown here is a rare and unusual manuscript: MALARIA IN BORNEO. MALAYSIA. PRE-WORLD WAR II. An account of the Work of the Malaria Research Department, North Borneo, 1939-42. Signed by the author, John McArthur, M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P. Malaria Research Officer, North Borneo. 250 pages. Size: 13"x8". Dr. McArthur was born in Glasgow, Scotland on November 9, 1901 and died on April 1996 in Cambridge England. He is also known as inventing a portable microscope.About this manuscript from the author typewritten on the inside page: "The manuscript has had a difficult and hazardous career. Just completed in the interior of North Borneo at the time of the Japanese occupation, it was confiscated by the Japanese Military Police, and burned. Re-written from odd notes during a period of parole, it was confiscated again, but rescued in part by a Chinese doctor, who carried through the Japanese lines to the Australian forces. The remainder, blown up by an Allied bomb, was finally dug, filthy and dripping, after 5 days' excavation by 40 Japanese soldiers, from a waterlogged carrier, where it had lain for eleven months under tons of debris. It is here in these pages, torn and faded, but representing all that survives, which are offerred as a contribution to malariology and to the health of Borneo."Acknowledgements to Dr. Liem of Jesselton for risking his life saving a great part of the manuscript and to the Australian Army, 9th Division.Table of Contents: Chapter 1 IntroductionChapter II Previous Knowledge regarding Malaria in BorneoChapter III The Evidence of JesseltownChapter IV The Physical Features of TambunanChapter V The Climate of TambunanChapter VI Vital Statistics of TambunanChapter VII The People of TambunanChapter VIII History of Malaria in TambunanChapter IX Epidemiology of Malaria in TambunanChapter X Malaria Transmission in TambunanChapter XI The Habits of A.leucosphyrus in TambunanChapter XIII The Control of A. leucosphyrus in TambunanAppendix TechniqueFigure 1 Showing situation of Borneo in southeast Asia;Figure 2 showing sketch map of North Borneo with Jesselton, Tambunan village, Sandakan and Tawau, Labuan, Brunei, Miri, Sarawak, Kuching and Dutch Borneo with Ponianak, Balikpapan, Poeloe Laoet.
