Scope and Contents:
The material includes lists, texts, brief articles, clippings, vocabularies, letters, reading notes, bibliographic notes, and maps. Much of the material has to do with natural history and geography and includes material on place names and animal names. Some of the material has no direct relation to Roth's study of Guyana aborigines. For example, there are comparisons of names on maps of different periods and and lists of fauna. There are also small amounts of material on face painting, loan words (Indian in Dutch, European words in Carib), and petroglyphs. Some of the clippings concern Brazil.
