Item description for A Study of Philippine Games by Mellie Leandicho Lopez...
"There is no doubt that this marvelous compilation of Philippine games will take its rightful place in the history of folklore research as one of the major collections of traditional games, perhaps ranking with Stewart Culin's Games of the North American Indians (1907) and Lady Alice Gomme's Traditional Games of England, Scotland, and Ireland (1894-1898). For this reason, folklorists of the present and future stand greatly indebted to Mellie Leandicho Lopez for her remarkable achievement in recording and preserving so important a portion of the traditional heritage of the Philippines."
