This is one of the earliest attempts to provide a comprehensive picture of a wide range of Malay proverbs and pantuns with proverbial connotations. As Hose states in his preface, almost all of the entries had been published before, mainly in the journals of the Straits Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society. Each entry, listed alphabetically, has a translation into English and sometimes some further comment. The book was intended for newly arrived expatriates in Malaya and two pages of notes of a previous owner are laid in. Good Board Book. 174 pages.
