In Borneo Jungles : Among the Dyak Headhunters

---

William O Krohn

 

An American forensic surgeon, who travelled to Borneo in 1920s to collect ethnological specimens for the Chicago Museum of Natural History, provided this first-hand account of the Dyak tribe of Borneo. He was not prepared for this adventure in which he encountered towering trees, crocodiles, shrieking monkeys and pitch dark nights. He was also surprised to come across the fierce and feared headhunting Dyaks. However he soon came to know them sufficiently to record their ways of life and beliefs for this book. The book has been rebound in leatherette boards with leather edgings and the title is stamped in gilt lettering on the spine. Good Hardback 327 pages with an index, a map and several black and white plates.

Weight: 1 kg Post free within Malaysia

Condition : The gilt titling on the spine is barely visible and the spine has darkened with age. There is minor rubbing around the cover edges. 4 of the pages up to and including the contents page have shadows as if something was previously laid in. Otherwise the binding is tight, text clear and there is very mild tanning throughout.
