Bomoh-Poyang: Traditional Medicine and Ceremonial Art of the Aborigines of Malaysia 
--- 
Roland Werner

This is probably the most complete account of the healing arts of Malaysian aborigines, Orang Asli, that has been published or is likely to be published, given the declining aboriginal population on the Malaysian peninsula. There is an exhaustive account of various rituals, prayers, chants and other procedures employed by the Mah-Meri and Jah-Het communities. Very Good Paperback. First Edition 632 pages with a map and numerous figures and black and white plates 

Weight: 2.2  kg Post free within Malaysia, but may incur additional charges when posted elsewhere.

Condition: The spine is slightly cocked, but there is not much other evidence of cover wear. There are faint shadows on the end papers from the cover flaps and minor spotting on the text block. Otherwise the book looks fairly new.
