The Collectanea series of the Anthropos Institute was startet in 1967 by Wilhelm Saake. The purpose of this series was to collect and publish materials dealing with societies without script. Over the years more than 40 volumes have appeared, dealing with general ethnography, religious ethnography, and linguistic materials. However, the aim of this series has been expanded to include the preservation of items of cultural significance.
