Malay books printed in Bombay a report on sources for historical bibliography
I. Proudfoot,
Since the end of the nineteenth century, many Malay books have been printed by Muslim printers in Bombay. This publishing activity has not yet been well documented. Useful sources for a bibliography of Bombay Malay-language printing are the Bombay Government Gazettes and the books preserved under copyright deposit legislation. This article introduces these sources. In the appendices it summarises the legal provisions applicable in India and the Straits Settlements, reproduces excerpts from the Bombay Government Gazette, and gives an impression of the scope of this printing.
