These two volumes open the edition of THE COLLECTED WORKS OF BRONISLAW
PILSUDSKI, an eminent self-made scholar, whom history has proved to
have been one of the most remarkable explorers of the languages and
cultures of the small aboriginal peoples inhabiting the island of
Sakhalin and the adjacent lower Amur region at the turn of the
twentieth century: the Sakhalin Ainu, Nivhgu (Gilyaks), Oroks, Olchas,
and Nanais. Pilsudski, hardly leaving any important aspect of their
life untouched, presents a versatile and incomparable image of the
spiritual and material world of communities long since extinct.

A small part of Pilsudski's works, written in languages ranging from
German, French, and English to Russian, Polish and Japanese appeared
in small, local periodicals now constituting bibliographical rarities
retrieved. For the most part, however, his writings have remained
unpublished up to the present day.

Conceived under the auspices of the International Commitee for the
Restoration and Assessment of the Work of Bronislaw Pilsudski (ICRAP),
this edition reconstructs Pilsudski's invaluable contribution to the
humanities. At the same time it presents a reconstruction of the world
of the Sakhalin natives which has been absorbed by the past.

Volume 1: THE ABORIGINES OF SAKHALIN. This volume contains
translations into English of the Polish, Russian and Japanese material
on, for example, the history, folklore, economic life, shamanism,
sexual life, medical anthropology, and the bear festival which has
been published between 1898 and 1936, mainly in local journals which
are hardly accessible today. English, French and German articles
appear in the original language.

Volume 2: MATERIALS FOR THE STUDY OF THE AINU LANGUAGE AND FOLKLORE
(CRACOW 1912). A reprint of the classic 1912 Cracow edition with an
accompanying index.
