Memories of Raffles – 22 Years with a Grand Hotel
150 x 210 mm
Droll, wistful poignant, upbeat and often hilariously funny! said Raymond Flower about this book, published by Treasury Publishing.
It is the account of a man who lead Raffles Hotel Singapore for over 22 years, saved it from demolition and handed it to the next generation of hoteliers who run it today: Roberto Pregarz.

Dear wonderful Readers;
It is noteworthy that, contrary to all predictions, interest in good books is not dwindling.
The first copies of THE HALF MOON TREASURY are being released – exclusively to our readers (and before its official launching date).
We have released a reprint of our successful book THE WESTIN EXCLESIOR ROME, the most famous hotel on Via Veneto.
The new edition of THE STRAND (Yangon,Myanmar), for example, receives wonderful readers' feedback — thank you for your notes and mails. METROPOLE HANOI and ORIENTAL BANGKOK were relaunched in brand new edtions. The Oriental book is the first to present the (very) complete list of all authors who had ever visited.
We dispatch all our books personally autographed (as you know).
Have a save journey!
