Introduction

Scope and Contents

The collection of Sundanese manuscripts (language spoken in West Java, Indonesia) consists partly of Sundanese folk tales. It contains 130 parts, each of which is made up of lined double leaved sheets measuring 22 × 34 cm.; both sides of the page have been written on. The double leaved sheets in each part are contained in a labelled cover and sewn together.

Conditions Governing Access

Please refer to the collection's catalogue record (http://nla.gov.au/nla.cat-vn1184307) for the access conditions.

Conditions Governing Use

Copying and publishing of unpublished manuscript material is subject to copyright restrictions. For such material, written permission to publish must be obtained from the copyright holder(s). Copying of unpublished material for research purposes is permissible 50 years after the death of the creator of the material.

Preferred Citation

Items from this collection should be cited as '[Title or description of manuscript item], Sundanese Manuscripts Collection, National Library of Australia, MS 1673, [box number and item number]'.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

The collection of manuscripts was purchased by the National Library of Australia from Martinus Nijhoff, Publisher and Bookseller, The Hague, Netherlands, in January 1959. This firm had acquired the collection from the estate of the late Mr. R. A. Kern, LL.M., after his death in March, 1958. Mr. Kern was sometime Advisor for Native and Muhammadan Affairs to the Netherlands East India Government at Batavia and afterwards lecturer in the Sundanese language at Leiden University; at times he also lectured on Islam and on the Buginese and Macassar languages. (For Mr. Kern's bio-bibliography see: Bijdragen tot de Taal-, Land- en Volkenkunde, vol. 114, pp. 345-358.) Mr. Kern built up his collection by having someone copy for him the greater part of the Sundanese manuscript collection of the Bataviaasch Genootschap voor Kunsten en Wetenschappen.

This collection is, therefore, and always has been smaller than the original collection of Sundanese MSS of the Bataviaasch Genootschap. However, it is understood that some of the original MSS of the Bataviaasch Genootschap have been lost, so that their transcriptions in this collection may be the only extant copies available. According to Indonesische Handschriften by R. M. Ug. Dr. Poerbatjaraka, Dr. P Voorhoeve and Dr. C. Hooykaas (Bandung, Nix, 1950), p. 177, the lost MSS are BG nos. 68,80,125 and 137. (Hooykaas quotes the titles of BG. no. 125 as "Roepa roepa dongeng", which is also its title in Finding Aid IId, although here BG No. 124 has the same title. The actual volume, however, is entitled: "Tjarita dedemit", while BG no. 124 is called: "Roepa roepa dongeng".)

Arrangement

In the descriptive list below the following information is given:

The item number is the number of manuscripts as they are arranged in the National Library. The number of the collection as a whole is MS 1673.

The "BG No" is number of the manuscript as listed in the "catalogus" of the Bataviaasch Genootschap.

The item title is the title of each MS as given on its cover. Where the titles inside the cover differ substantially from the one on the outside they have been added in square brackets. The numbers in round brackets refer to the number of pages in each MS.

The "Alternate BG title" is the title of each MS as quoted in Finding Aid IId.

The "Abstract no" is the number of the corresponding abstract in the work referred to in Finding Aid III.

The "Further remarks" include those of Finding Aid IId which have been translated into English. The majority of remarks consist of short explanations of the titles and notes by Dr. Voorhoeve's successor as keeper of Oriental manuscripts in the University of Leiden, Dr. Th. Pigeaud.
