Description
Preface

IT was my first intention to publish a second edition of a work which I gave to the public six-and-thirty years ago, but, on mature consideration, I have come to the conclusion that a subject so multifarious as a general description of the Indian and Philippine Archipelagos would be most conveniently and compendiously treated by an alphabetic arrangement. The result is the present work ; the fruit of seven years' additional local experience of India, and of a study of the subject continued with little interruption from the publication of the History of the Indian Archipelago, in 1820. Some of the articles are meagre from want of materials, and others, without doubt, imperfect and unsatisfactory from defective knowledge or skill in the writer ; but, upon the whole, the book will probably be found the most comprehensive and accessible which has yet been published on the extensive region of which it treats, while it will, at all events, lay the foundation for a more perfect superstructure by those who may follow the Author in the same direction.
