A Malay-English Dictionary (Romanised) (2 Volumes)
London: Macmillan, 1959. Hardcover. Good. 6-9-15. More than 50 years after the publication of Wilkinson's magnum opus of a Malay-English dictionary in English and the Malay Jawi and Rumi scripts, this work confines itself to English and the Rumi (Romanised) script. The is an interesting short preface where the compiler explains "how he came 'to take up so dull a hobby' as writing dictionaries. The first volume covers the Malay letters A to K, while the second volume covers the remainder of the alphabet. As in the original volumes, Wilkinson, where known, gives the origins of the words defined. There is also a short bibliography. 1298 pages. Weight: 3kg. Post free within Malaysia, but, due to its weight, this book is likely to incur additional postal charges when posted outside Malaysia The two volumes appear to be in their original bindings, but the covers have scattered stains and some bubbling of the cloth. The bottom corners of both covers are worn. The binding is tight and the text clear with mild to medium tanning throughout.
