Although small by comparison with manuscript holdings in Indonesia, Malaysia and the Netherlands, British collection are especially notable for their antiquity and, in some cases, contain unique copies of important texts. This catalogue includes all manuscripts in the indigenous languages of Indonesia (except Papua), Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, and the Philippines, as well as Cham and Malagasy, found in British public collections.
Since publication in 1977, Indonesian manuscripts in Great Britain by M.C. Ricklefs & P. Voorhoeve has become an essential reference tool for scholars of Indonesia and the Malay world. Over 1,200 manuscripts were listed with information on names of authors, scribes, owners and collectors, dates and places of writing, watermarks and paper. This New Edition presents facsimiles of the original 1977 catalogue and the Addenda et corrigenda of 1982 listing a further 92 manuscripts, together with a new supplement of 2014 describing 155 manuscripts not included in the previous editions.

Particularly important are the collections of manuscripts in Malay, Javanese, Batak, Buginese and Makasarese.
