Contains i.a. Kroniek der Stadsgemeente Malang over de jaren 1914-1939
Collation: (12), ccxxvii, 259 pp.
Condition: original leather binding with embossed Malang coat of arms. The spine and the corners are somewhat scuffed. The book is rare and we were able to find some copies in cloth (currently not for sale anywhere!) so we suspect that this is a deluxe copy in a very limited edition.
¶ Malang is a city and municipality (kotamadya) located in the province of East Java about ninety kilometres south of Surabaya on the island of Java, Indonesia.
Malang is an important tourist centre, partly because of its agreeable climate, its Art Deco buildings and because of its traditional dances such as the Tari Topeng (dance with masks), Jaran Pegon and Tari Beskalan.
Malang has a history as a city in the ancient kingdoms of Kanjuruhan and Singhasari. From 1614 it was located in the well-known kingdom of Mataram. In 1879, Malang was connected to Java's railway network and it became well accessible as a recreational resort. Before the Second World War, Malang (like Bandung) was a popular resort for the (retired) Dutch colonists, because of its ‘fresh’ climate. The layout is that of a garden city (wide avenues with trees and parks) since the 1920-1940s, and this layout is well preserved. There are many buildings in Art Deco style.
