Regional Art Centres on the Northern Silk Road in the Tenth and Eleventh Centuries
Careful study of the iconography, technique and style sheds new light on important paintings in the collection of the British Museum in London, and the Musée national des Arts asiatiques-Guimet, in Paris, and through comparative analysis the importance of regional art centres in medieval China and Central Asia is explored. Richly illustrated with line drawings, as well as colour and black-and-white plates.
The Interpenetration of Cultures at the Edge of the Hellenic World
This volume offers substantial bibliography relating to the extensive research on Scythian art, archaeology, and history, published in the Russian and Ukrainian languages over the last 150 years.
A word list of 3,343 items with Standard Thai, English and Vietnamese glosses was used for eliciting the Black Tai or Tai Dam language data at each of the twelve research sites: ten in northern Vietnam, one in northern Laos, and one in central Thaialnd. The data collected at two villages in Muong Vat could not be used for a reconstruction of Old Black Tai phonological system and a lexicon because on a phonological basis and a lexical basis, the Tai dialect of Muong Vat is not Black Tai, especially the one spoken at Ban Phat, Chieng Pan sub-district and Ban Coc Lac, Tu Nang sub-district, Son La province, Vietnam.

Part 2: The Expeditions of H.A. Lorentz to New Guinea, 1903-1914
National Archives of the Netherlands
In 2004 Moran Micropublications started a new series of archival publications on microfiche on the theme of science in a colonial context. The first part consisted of the archive of the “Indies Committee for Scientific Research” (order number MMP112) (in Dutch Indisch Comité voor Wetenschappelijke Onderzoekingen), which organized and sent out many scientific expeditions to various parts of the Indonesian archipelago in the last years of the nineteenth and early part of the twentieth centuries. In these years the world’s second largest island, New Guinea, was still largely unknown to the outside. The Dutch, who claimed half the island as part of their East Indies colony, were anxious to explore it for both commercial and scientific reasons and organized a series of expeditions there, among others in 1903, 1907, and 1909-1910. H.A. Lorentz (1871-1944, not to be confused with the Nobel-prize winning Dutch physicist Hendrik A. Lorentz, 1853-1928) participated in the first and led the second two. His personal archive of the three expeditions contains a great deal of correspondence with individuals and institutions in several countries and languages with an index of correspondents in the appendix (Bijlage I, pp.21-26 below); much information on the organization and infrastructure of the expeditions; and of course diaries, field notes, draft reports and other documents concerning the local population and the geography, flora and fauna of the regions explored. Also included are several maps, newspaper clippings and articles and manuscripts of his two major publications in which he recounted the first and third of the expeditions: Eenige maanden onder de papoea’s [Several months among the Papuans] (1905) and Zwarte menschen, witte bergen [Black people, white mountains] (1913, new edition 2005). His archive forms a valuable supplement to that of the Indies Committee.
