Kuala Lumpur: Silverfish Books, 2018. Reprint. Paperback. New. Skeat, one of the leading ethnographers working in Malaya in the late 19th and early 20th centuries specialised in writing lengthy works about what he unearthed at a time when there was very little written in English about the country's folklore and traditional culture.
