This collection of 26 documents concerns the Yapese, who speak an Eastern Malayo-Polynesian language and occupy the westernmost of the Caroline Islands in Micronesia. The earliest documents in the collection, translated from German, were published between 1873 and 1917 and cover the time period of 1865 to 1910. The accounts are by explorers, government officials, missionaries, natural scientists, and travelers. There is one Spanish source and a German translation of Russian explorer's diary. Topics include religion, geography, music, poetry, dance, funerals, and money. Documents from the American period and onwards, starting in 1947, include a general ethnography, politics, courtship and marriage, dispute settlement, food, and post-colonial changes. Yap was under Spanish control from 1871 to 1899, German control from 1899 to 1914, Japanese control from 1914 to 1945, and American control from 1945 to 1985, after which it became part of an independent state (Yap State) in the Federated States of Micronesia
