People and Wildlife in and Around Saigon (1872-1873)

A report on Dr Morice’s posting in the then newly-acquired colony of France, Cochinchina. Since the author took a special interest in snakes and insects, attention is paid especially to these. Dr Morice also elaborates on the local people and their customs, including the Chinese merchants in Saigon and on the diseases most commonly occurring. A number of local customs and festivities are described through the tinted spectacles of a colonialist Frenchman. Dr Morice also traveled the smaller towns of the Delta extensively, and contributes to our knowledge of the terrain before the French commenced their culturally damaging, large-scale intervention.
