Overview
Excerpt from The Natives of Sarawak and British North Borneo, Vol. 1 of 2: Based Chiefly on the Mss. Of the Late Hugh Brooke Low Sarawak Government Service

About the origin and primitive purposes of Prefaces, the learned may dispute, basing their results on historical research into prefaces at large. It is a probable opinion that the Preface was, at first, intended to inform the reader as to what he might expect to find in the book before him. In our own day, when nobody reads, and critics read least of all, a glance at the Preface (only a glance) furnishes the newspaper reviewer with his two or three inches of copy. Into the actual book he very seldom dips, and the anxious author receives, in criticism, what he has, in a Preface, himself set forth.
