Calcutta, Printed by P.A. Bonardi at the Catholic Orphan Press, 3-4 Portuguese Church Street, 1929.

Large octavo, [vi], 112 pages.

Original blind-stamped green cloth a little rubbed and marked, with minor wear to the extremities (a little heavier along the bottom edges near the corners); front board a little bowed; rear board lightly cracked (creasing the cloth a little, but quite firm); occasional foxing; minor signs of use; a decent copy.

The front flyleaf carries the inkstamp of the bookseller George Webb, 5 Crampton Quay [Dublin], and the ownership signature of H.N. Goodbody (an officer in the Royal Pioneer Corps). 'The Santals are a very large non-Aryan tribe, numbering over a million and a half, at present inhabiting the table-land of the Santal Parganas, and the plateau of Chota Nagpur, and are also to be found in large colonies in the districts surrounding these two plateaus and in North Bengal, right up to Assam' (first paragraph). 'The phrases which comprise the major portion of this publication were contributed by various constituents of the Association'; they make most interesting reading.
