Traditional Drama and Music of Southeast Asia, 1974 edited by Mohd Taib Osman consists of illustrated essays on shadow plays, music, musical instruments and theater in southeast Asia.

These essays from an International Conference in Kuala Lumpur in 1969 are presented in sections, as follows ~
Section A: The Shadow Play in Southeast Asia
Section B: Traditional Theatre in Southeast Asia
Section C: Music and Musical Instruments in Southeast Asia

Throughout the book are a number of black and white illustrations, outlines, and several pages of musical notations, as well as scholarly documentation in the form of footnotes.

This book is in very good condition, with the spine firm and the pages clean and tightly bound. A few pages show some creasing but no tears, and there is wear to the dust jacket. There is a small scuff mark on the inside front cover, and a previous owner's name is written in ink on the fly leaf.

This book normally ships the next business day via media mail. For faster delivery, please contact me in advance to upgrade to priority mail.
