On this page is a complete list of reprints of MBRAS publications dating back to the first one issued in 1973 to mark the 150th Anniversary of the Founding of Singapore by Stamford Raffles. However, you should note that a good number of titles advertised here are sadly out of print and no longer available. The older reprints may still be obtained as second hand copies through antiquarian bookshops catering for specialists and collectors. Due to the high costs involved in reissuing these volumes,the Society has no immediate plans to republish any of the titles. However, if you feel strongly that some of them ought to see the light of publication once more, we heartily welcome your feedback and any suggestions you may have for us to improve our list of publications.

Please email for titles that are still available for sale as well as post and packaging options for your area.
