Johor: 300 Early Postcards is a book of early picture postcards by Dato' Professor Dr. Cheah Jin Seng. The book contains picture postcards of the Malaysian state of Johor, which offer a rare opportunity to view the architecture, landscapes and lifestyles of a bygone era, from the late 19th century to the 1950's.

The book begins with a brief history of modern Johor and its postcards includes chapters on royalty, royal visitors and government; the Johor-Singapore Causeway; the capital, Johor Bahru; and the towns, people, economy, flora and fauna of the state. It concludes with a history of deltiology and philately in Johor.

The postcards in Johor: 300 Early Postcards are drawn from the author's personal collection, built over more than 30 years, and are reproduced at, or close to their natural size and colour. As such, the book is a valuable collector's item as well as an important historical reference.
