In 1821, the then Governor-General of India, Lord Hastings, sent John Crawfurd to the courts of Siam (now Thailand) and Cochinchina (now Vietnam.) Lord Hastings was especially interested in learning more about Siamese policy with regard to the northern Malay states, and Cochinchina's policy with regard to French efforts to establish a presence in Asia. The noted naturalist George Finlayson (1790-1823) accompanied the Crawfurd Trade Mission as naturalist, returning with it to Calcutta in 1823. By this time his health was thoroughly broken, and he soon afterwards died. The journal which he had kept during the mission was edited, with a prefatory notice of the author, by Sir Stamford Raffles (DNB). The voyage commenced from Calcutta and sailed via Prince of Wales Island to Malacca, Siam, China and Vietnam. The book contains numerous observations on the Chinese in South East Asia (Löwendahl, Supplement, p.87). - Rare.Cordier BI col. 975; Howgego II, p.220; Troelstra, Natural history travel narratives, p.153.
