An Account of the Malay "Chiri":
Sir William Edward Maxwell
As was often the case with British colonial officers, Sir William Edward Maxwell, spread further afield an appreciation of the culture of the country where he worked. Sir William's speciality was the Malay and other Eastern languages. This 22 page pamphlet is a fascinating linguistic discourse as to how Sanskrit words crept into the "Chiri", an incantation made at the installation of sultans and other senior officials of Malay states. Post free within and outside Malaysia.
