The Ethnography of Assam

    Naturevolume 79pages100101 (1908) | Download Citation



    THE new volumes of the ethnographical series issued by the Government of Eastern Bengal and Assam, in continuation of Major Gurdon's excellent monograph on the Khasis, are devoted to an account of the Mikirs and the Meitheis. These manuals are in pleasing contrast in appearance to ordinary Anglo-Indian ethnological publications. Printed in England, the format is all that could be desired, and they are fully equipped with excellent half-colour illustrations, photographs, and maps. It is to be hoped that the success of this series will encourage the Central Provinces authorities to issue similar accounts of the Gonds and their kinsfolk, and the Madras Government to arrange for the issue of Mr. Thurston's Bulletins in less inartistic form.
