The first English translation of Bali, the popular second edition of a German classic introduction to the island published in 1922. The book was a bestseller because of Gregor Krause’s unique photographs, which he made when he was a medical doctor in the employ of the Dutch on Bali from 1912 until 1914. The introductory text covers almost all aspects of life and art on Bali as well as its nature and its trade with neighboring islands. It still is a remarkable introduction to an island that flourished culturally before the onslaught of the tourist industry. The attentive visitor will still recognize vistas of this rich past in the scenes and especially in the people he’ll meet there nowadays.
