It is indeed his doctoral thesis:

   BRANDES, Jan Lourens Andries, 1884, Bijdrage tot de vergelijkende
   klankleer der Westersche Afdeeling van de Maleisch-Polynesische
   Taalfamilie, thesis, Rijks-Universiteit te Leiden.

I have a copy of it at home. If you want to know the pages in it that
deal with a certain subject, let me know and give me one night time
to look it up at home.....

Regards,   Waruno
