By James Lee

Long Lost Classic Drug Literature

Underworld of the East is the remarkable story of James Lee who, starting in 1895, spent 20 years pursuing all the pleasures and dangers the Far East had to offer. A twilight world of ports, red light districts, drug dens and secret chambers of vice, and our guide not some prurient flaneur protesting his shock and disbelief at every step but a mining foreman from Yorkshire who is largely preoccupied with smoking, swallowing and injecting as many drugs as possible.

Finally he tells us of his discovery of two mysterious drugs in the jungles of Sumatra which - if their existence and effects are to be believed - would offer not only spectacular new highs to the drug connoisseur but nothing less than a fortune to the pharmaceutical industry.
