It has been well said that there will be plenty of money and people available for anthropological research when there are no more aborigines. And it behooves our museums to waste no time in completing their anthropological collections. The author who was superintendent of ethnography of South India and also, in addition to his ethnographic studies, was in charge of the direction of a large museum, makes an excellent blend with the survey operations, as the work of collection for the Ethnological section goes on synchronously with that of investigation. For many years, the author had been engaged in bringing together the scattered information bearing on Manners and Customs in South India, surviving, moribund of deceased, which lies buried in official reports, manuals, journals of the learned societies and other publications. The information thus collected has been supplemented by correspondence with the district officers and private individuals.

This study by the author of the world-famous monumental work “Castes and Tribes of Southern India” which is complete in seven volumes will be of great help to the sociologist, anthropologist, and historians who are engaged in the study of ethnological and sociological questions in the arm chair or in the field. The book which is in two parts is a supplement to the authors seven volumes set and has forty illustrations, and will be of immense use and help in the field of social anthropology.
