226 pages, well illustrated, blue cloth, book is very good but the dust jacket has a one inch by five inch piece missing from the flap. From the DJ: “Much has been written about Malaya's history but relatively little about its culture. Taman Indera is the first detailed study of Malayan culture, as seen in its decorative arts and pastimes. Following an introductory chapter, which outlines the development of civilization and culture in the Malayan peninsula, the author devote separate chapters to various aspects of the decorative arts and pastimes. Regalia and palaces, musical instruments, dance and drama, wedding ceremonies, dress, weapons, the art of self-defense, metal work, and the pastimes of kite flying and top spinning are all surveyed. The exceptionally fine illustrations, 83 in color and 65 in black and white, and 35 line drawings, have been selected and laid out with much care so that they form an integral part of the text and add to the reader's understanding and enjoyment of it. ”; 226 pages
