About this Item

First edition (printed in an edition of 350 copies), small 4to, pp. [4], iii, [1], 108; original green cloth, gilt lettering on upper cover; very good. Texts entirely in Kurux [i.e. Oraon / Uraon / Kurukh], a northern Dravidian language collected by German Evangelical Lutheran missionary at Chota Nagpur who, "during more than twenty years' residence at Lohardaga in the midst of an Orao population the author of the Kuruhk Grammar and the Kuruhk-English Dictionary has made a collection of about seventy stories, more than one hundred and fifty songs, besides a large number of riddles in use among the Oraos of that part of Chota Nagpur. This collection had to be sifted on account of the ambiguousness of some of the stories, the triviality of many of the riddles, and the doubtful morality in most of the songs . The present volume contains therefore only a selection . which, however, will be sufficient to answer the purpose of placing into the hands of the student of the Orao language a text book which has been written entirely by members of the people to whom it is the mother tongue" (Introduction). OCLC locates 30-odd copies; COPAC locates copies at Oxford, Cambridge, Trinity, London School of Oriental Studies, British Library and National Library of Scotland. Bookseller Inventory # 32373
