Adventures Among the Dyaks of Borneo, Boyle, Frederick
2 Boyle, Frederick Adventures Among the Dyaks of Borneo
Kota Kinabalu Opus Publications 2007 9833987117 / 9789833987115 
(Originally published in 1865). pp x, 324, paperback, a very good copy. [The title is rather misleading. Yes, there were adventures with Dyaks for the author and his brother—hunting expeditions in the jungle with the only means of crossing the numerous rivers a slippery log high above the water. But there were also coastal voyages north from Kuching with officers of Rajah Brooke’s administration to towns such as Mukah and Bintulu. There were meetings with several of the numerous ethnic groups of Sarawak as well as with Chinese and Malays. There were the festivities for Rajah Brooke’s 22nd anniversary of acquiring Sarawak. There was the same wildlife to be seen that tourists seek out today. However, as this was 1863 the animals were more likely to be shot with a rifle than a camera. There were other natural wonders that tourists from temperate countries still marvel at today—giant turtles laying their eggs on beaches, amazing pitcher plants, extraordinary orchids, tropical fruit of many varieties including, of course, the unbelievable durian.]

Kota Kinabalu Opus Publications 2007 9833987230 / 9789833987238 Pictorial Cloth New New 
NEW. (1953) Reprinted 2007 with a new introduction, black and white illustrations, folding map, thick 8vo, pp xxviii, 579, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [The Religion of the Tempasuk Dusuns of North Borneo, which was first published in 1953, is one of the most important books written about the Dusun of the Tempasuk district, one of the numerous ethnic groups in Sabah (formerly called North Borneo). It is based on the author’s fieldwork in the early 20th century and in the pre- and post-World War II periods when he lived amongst these people. The book gives a very comprehensive account of the Dusun’s general beliefs, beginning with their creation myth, as well as their ceremonies (agricultural, communal and personal). These are not mere text accounts of what the author witnessed at these ceremonies. More than 50 fascinating photographs of these ceremonies are included in the book, an appendix gives the texts of some of the rites. The third section of the book has 65 folktales of the Tempasuk Dusun, covering a wide variety of themes. Several are creation tales, others tell the story of origin of these people, while a number of the stories are morality tales.]

Folk-Lore in Borneo : a Sketch, Furness, William
18 Furness, William Folk-Lore in Borneo : a Sketch
Kota Kinabalu Opus Publications 2009 9833987184 / 9789833987184 
(Originally privately published in 1899). Small slim 12mo, pp 29, paperback, a very good copy. [This booklet, first published in 1899, begins with a description of the way of life of the peoples of Sarawak in the 19th century - their houses, social structure and their beliefs in the spirits. Creation myths of the Kayans and the Dayaks, a legend on the origin of the tradition of head-hunting, stories of visits to regions below the earth and above the earth; all are told. One of the stories of a visit to a land above the earth recounts how Si Kira gave the Dayaks three types of rice, but the author laments that he also gave them their omen-birds; the sighting of any of these birds can cause any project - even vital chores such as the planting of rice - to be postponed. Superstitions regarding names, ceremonies for the naming of a child, taboos on uttering one's own name, the changing of the name of a sick person, are also described.]

Tawau - the making of a tropical community, Goodlet, Ken
19 Goodlet, Ken Tawau - the making of a tropical community
Kota Kinabalu Opus Publications 2010 9833987389 / 9789833987382 First Edition Cloth As New As New 
Illustrated with black and white photographs, pp viii, 362, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [The story of Tawau and its people is only around 130 years old. People alive today, including this author, have known those who were present at the very start of a recognisable settlement at the mouth of the Tawau River. Ken Goodlet’s interviews cover around 21 linguistic groups in those early days, making this record of Tawau rainbow-coloured in its diversity. The book shows that Tawau has had at least two natural advantages: its location and its natural wealth. Situated at the meeting point of three states that were formerly very different (and competing) colonies, Tawau has been a haven of prosperity and peace, first under the British and then as part of Malaysia. This has attracted trade and immigration (and, at times, envy) not only from far distant Japan and China, but from the Dutch East Indies (later, Indonesia) to its immediate south and from the Spanish and American and, later, independent Philippines to its east. Tawau’s natural wealth, evidenced in a favourable climate, large pockets of excellent soil and coal deposits, has provided residents with jungle produce, then mining and timber, then rubber and hemp and cocoa, and finally oil palm prosperity, augmented by a host of less important agricultural products. The book shows how this has led to extensive migration and capital investment and to the growth of a diverse agriculture-based economy with a complex infrastructure. While previously unimagined wealth has brought better health and a higher standard of living, inevitably it has brought problems - unsustainable exploitation of natural resources, illegal immigration, wealth inequity and loss of some community values. But the final chapters make clear the present is a better world for most than it was at any time in the past.]
