Both volumes have gilt top-edges and decorated gilt spines. Good. "It is not...solely as a monograph on the particular tribes specially dealt with that the present work claims to be regarded, but also as a necessary preliminary to a general scientific survey of the races of Southern Indo-China and the Malay Peninsula. Resident as they have been for untold centuries in the Peninsula, these pagan tribes nevertheless have much affinity with some of the wild races of Indo-China, and thus form a link between these two regions. Moreover, the Malay population of the Peninsula presents characteristics which vary very distinctly in different districts, and in some parts it contains a strong strain of aboriginal blood, so that an investigation into the wild races is an essential preparation towards a scientific study of the Malays themselves.

"The survey...covered 899 miles and involved 78 rivers. In addition to the river survey data, soil samples were collected for laboratory grain size analysis. An objective of the survey was to determine the frequency of rivers in Thailand in order to establish the magnitude of the water-crossing problem for the area. The river frequency for the entire survey was one river every 11.4 miles. The conclusion was, therefore, that the river frequency is high and would constitute a severe problem to cross-country movement."

An anthropological linguist who has worked among the Hmong, William A. Smalley joins Shong Lue's chief disciple, Chia Koua Vang, and one of his associates, to tell the fascinating story of how the previously unschooled farmer developed his remarkable writing system through four stages of increasing sophistication.

"Alexander Hamilton's classic text, A NEW ACCOUNT OF THE EAST INDIES, has only been published three times since it first appeared in Edinburgh in 1727; its length and breadth (it covers everywhere from the Red Sea to Japan) have precluded more editions, and the most recent, the Argonaut Press limited 1930 edition, is unobtainable. Yet as a source of information on the region it is invaluable, and is enlivened by a number of amusing stories which fill out the historical and geographical background. Hamilton was a born raconteur and, among other things, one of the very few persons to come to Siam in the eighteenth century and leave an account of his stay. Michael Smithies has taken the fourteen chapters covering Southeast Asia from Hamilton's text and provided an introduction and explanatory footnotes to the selection..."; 9747100452

22 x 34 cm.; pg. xxxii, 32, 432; First published 1940. Preface to the third edition, introduction, list of numerous birds featured on 32 colored plates by Commander A. N. Hughes, distribution map, glossary, addendum, bibliography, index. "This massive, authoritative book was first published in an edition of 1000 copies in Rangoon by the American Baptist Mission Press in 1940. The author, in his preface to the second edition, tells how the original paintings and blocks for printing the colour plates (by A. M. Hughes) of the first edition were rescued on the eve of the Japanese occupation of Rangoon. Originally intended as a concise field guide, the author, believing that in independent Burma the study of birds seemed 'doomed to stagnate', expanded his original work into a full and accurate as possible account of the birds of Burma. The bibliography is invaluable for its listing of 20th-century publications on Burmese ornithology"..." Now the author has revised the text and re-arranged the sections so that the present day classification is followed. Moreover, the original paintings (by A. N. Hughes) have been made available by courtesy of the owner and thishas made possible a much improved layout and, with an increased paper size, a better presentation of the plates and text."
