Excerpt from Travels Amongst the Todas; Or the Study of a Primitive Tribe in South India: History, Character, Customs, Religion, Infanticide, Polyandry, Language With Outlines of the Tuda Grammar

It is the more proper and just that I should in this place render Mr. Metz the warmest acknowledgment of the very disinterested and important share he had in the undertaking, that there is so little in what I have written in these pages to recall his name. It was not only that his knowledge of Toda dialect was invaluable for minute and truthful investigation, but the personal respect in which he was held by the people, and the confidence they placed in his fidelity to them, obtained for us a more friendly welcome and complete exposure of their minds than would have been accorded had we been mere strangers. I must state, however, that my friend is not, even in the slightest degree, responsible for any opinions I have expressed.

A small Vocabulary, compiled and carefully revised by Mr. Metz, will be found as the groundwork of the last Chapter. It may be said, more entirely to consist of actual Toda words than any other existing.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 334 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.Excerpt from Travels Amongst the Todas; Or the Study of a Primitive Tribe in South India: History, Character, Customs, Religion, Infanticide, Polyandry, Language With Outlines of the Tuda GrammarIn the course of a furlough I took in the year 1870 to the Madras sanatarium of Utacamand, in the Nilagiri mountains, I heard much of an aboriginal race living in the neighbourhood; which, infanticidal and polyandrous, was said to be fast dying out. I had long been curious to understand the mysterious process by which, as appears inevitable, savage tribes melt away when forced into prolonged contact with a superior civilisation. But, ignorant of all the languages of South India, I should have relinquished attempt to study the Todas, had I not the great good fortune to make the acquaintance of the Reverend Friedrich Metz, of the Basel Missionary Society, who had spent upwards of twenty years in labours amongst the primitive tribes forming the inhabitants of the Nilagiris; and who, in addition to being skilled in several Dravidian dialects, was exceptionally practised in High Kanarese and Tamil. Above all, he was the only European able to speak the obscure Toda tongue. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
