(from the Ethnographic Collection of the Archives of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, No 388) – third and fi nal part of the manuscript – Th e third and fi nal part of Miloš Škarić’s manuscript, created in the fi rst half of the 20th century, saved in the face of the Ustaša pogrom and completed on St George’s Day in Belgrade in 1941, when it was delivered to the Ethnographic Collection for repurchase, contains further systematic description of customs of the Serbian people of Lika (already published in volumes of the Collection of Papers on Serbs in Croatia (Nos 9 and 10), from chapter XII (covering the already published Entertainment, Poems and Poetry) and continuing with the following chapters: Tales, Stories and Witticism – total 53 records; Riddles (daštalice) – 145 records; People’s Proverbs and Sayings – 133 records; Playing and Singing, Dances). Th e fi nal part of the manuscript contains chapters XIII (Spiritual Features) XIV (Bodily Features), XV (Folk Knowledge) and ...XVI (Additions) in the form of the Dictionary of Vernacular in Lika (lexemes “not found in Vuk’s Dictionary”). Miloš Škarić’s manuscript ends there. We hope that with its publication, following almost 75 years, this pearl of the Ethnographic Collection has seen daylight. Besides, this manuscript gives a valuable ethnographic contribution to the life and customs of the Serbian people in areas of today’s Croatia, where they practically no longer live. Th e editor introduced only minor orthographical corrections in Škarić’s text and intervened in the pagination with slash brackets. He also intervened in the segment of some folklore notes, which in terms of their quantity and quality (particularly small speech forms) can be a valuable source for studying genres in our folkloristics.
