About the book (from Preface):

This handbook is prepared more particularly for those English-speaking persons who wish to acquire the language by themselves with the least expenditure of time and labour. Whilst it is primarily intended to enable residents and travellers in Malaya to gain sufficient conversational power to carry them through the commonplaces of everyday life, it is hoped that the grammatical notes, idiomatic expressions, and the introduction to the Malay characters will be found effectual in affording students with higher ambition a sound foundation in their knowledge of the Malay language. Further, there are explanatory notes that indicate whether the grammatical rules given are for literary or colloquial Malay or both.
