BEING AN INTRODUCTION TO THE
FOLKLORE AND POPULAR RELIGION OF THE MALAY PENINSULA
WALTER WILLIAM SKEAT, M.A.
WITH A PREFACE BY
CHARLES OTTO BLAGDEN, M.A.
SPECTATOR.a a Most interesting. . . . Mr. Skeata s book must be read and ranked with those interesting volumes of Sir Frank Swettenham and Mr. Hugh Clifford, Lieut. Newbold and Sir William Maxwell.a
ATHENJEUM.a a A valuable work and a necessary addition to the library of the student of anthropology.a
OUTLOOK\a a One of the most fascinating volumes we have come across for a long time.a
OBSER VER.a a He has gathered together a great deal of curious and interesting matter, and has given a really notable addition to our later folklore literature.a '
GLASGOW HERALD.a a There is much more in Mr. Skeata s volume that is of the greatest interest, not only to the student of folklore, but to the student of man and the vagaries of the human mind, and we would fain quote further from his most engrossing pages. The book is one of the most important additions made in recent years to our knowledge of a remarkable race.a
MORNING POST.a a A rich collection of Malayan practice, folklore, and religion. . . . Students of Mr. Tylora s and Mr. Frazera s works will find the volume full of interest. . , . There has been no better book of the kind since that of Messrs. Spencer and Gillen on the natives of Central Australia.a
DAILY NEWS.a a The book has an interesting preface by Mr. Charles Otto Blagden, and is pleasantly illustrated with photographs of native-made puppets engaged in various rites and dances. There is an excellent index, and the whole work is a model of its kind, very unlike the many crude collections of scraps at third hand, which do so much to discredit the science of anthropology. Mr. Skeata s volume is an example of sound and industrious research, and of lucid statement. a
