A Journey in Cambodia and Cochin-China 1864 $30.00

A Journey in Cambodia and Cochin-China (1864)

By Adolf Bastian

This volume covers Dr Adolf Bastian’s journey from the border of present-day Thailand to present-day Saigon. Bastian was a renowned ethnographer, who founded both Berlin’s Museum für Völkerkunde (Ethnological Museum) and the Berlin Anthropological Society, and his work contains valuable observations and interpretations by one of the pioneers of ethnography.

During his travels through Isan and parts of Cambodia then under Siamese rule, as well as while in Saigon, the author observes, describes and records almost every aspect of the spiritual life of various groups of people he meets. Bastian compares the situation in these regions and among different ethnic groups, frequently using Siamese terms to do so. This thorough and indefatigable German scholar is one of the early visitors to the temple of Angkor Wat, which he calls ‘Nakhon Vat’, witnessing its structures before they started to get looted. He describes other edifices built by Cambodia’s many ethnic groups, monastery slaves, and the Siamese administration of Cambodian territory. Bastian takes a special interest in the Cham people, presenting valuable information not found elsewhere.

Life is described here in its manifold expressions and interactions, analyzed by a profound mind that had studied law at the University of Heidelberg and natural science as well as medicine in Berlin, Jena, and Würzburg.
