G.A. Henty's Illustrated "Among Malay Pirates"


Among Malay Pirates

A G.A. Henty Illustrated Classic

If you ever wanted to try our Illustrated G.A. Henty Classics, this is the perfect way to go! This smaller "chapter-novel" will not only give you a chance at a thrilling Henty novel, but also enable you to see just how an "Illustrated" novel works.

Illustrated with maps, photos and paintings as well as loaded with online dictionary and encyclopedia references, your student will read through the novel with ease. The convenient use of the dictionary and encyclopedia make it oh-so-easy to learn new terms, geography, culture, and history. The illustrations help the student to envision what s/he is reading.

These novels were a god-send for my Junior High sons--who were reluctant readers. They would have rather been outside playing than reading a "stuffy" book. When I first heard about the G.A. Henty novels, I introduced our oldest son to "With Lee in Virginia". He was "hooked!" From that point on, my sons began devouring the novels. And to my surprise, they were also picking up quite a bit of history as well. (G.A. Henty wrote Historic Fiction). With his eye for detail and Christian character, G.A. Henty novels are fantastic ways to teach History through Literature.

So, give this small novel a try. I think my son's experience will also be your own!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
