Thank you Pamela for the wonderful site.

I am interested in adding pieces to my humble collection of Southern Mindanao textiles and costumes. My specific area of interest is in T'boli items, but am also interested in B'laan, Bagobo, Manobo and Mandaya. I am always searching for t'nalak as well as costume and clothing items like blouses, trousers, beaded or brass belts, combs, or even singkil.

I am not a dealer and items will find a good, safe home with me. Thank you.

Maraming salamat po,

Hello Marbel,
just saw your post and as I am a collector of N.-Philipp. "igorot'items I happen to have a very RARE and elaborate old book about the Manobo which I got along with other booklets on N.-Phil. It looks like a museumpublication from 1931 n is called 'Memoirs of the National Academy of sciences' Washington, D.C. 'THE MANOBOS OF MINDANAO' by John M. Garvan 'presented to the academy at the annual meeting 1929'. It has 265 pages (as thick as your finger) and many many B/W pictures of objects and people. About 20 to 30 pics and many of textiles as well.
Yeah I guess I would have to make (many ;-S) pics/scans of the pics and contentspages, dont I?!
But better first ask if you may be interested in books as well. Ah its also a bigsize book b.t.w 12" x 9 3/4" !
I think really the pics are very interesting and the text (judging fro the topics) as well.
There's a stamp on the cover -I now see- that its been the property of the Peabody museum library.

Oke I have just made some quick pics of the front and just a couple of the many pictures. Have a look;

Best greetings, Wouter
