2 Volumes

William Walter Skeat & Charles Otto Blagden

This 1966 reprint of the original 1906 edition probably is still able to claim to be the most comprehensive review of Orang Asli, or aborigine people, in Peninsula Malaysia that has been written. The work comprehensively brings together the writings of other mainly European writers supplemented by the field work of the authors, two of the most experienced ethnographers of their time. The whole work is broken down into four parts

  • I - Race,
  • II - Manners and Customs,
  • III - Religion &
  • IV - Language. The second volume ends with more than 250 pages of a comparative vocabulary of aboriginal dialects.

724 and 855 pages with numerous black and white photographs
