A creole book and a dedication to a creolist: Philip Baker
Not long before Christmas, I received a parcel from Germany, presumably a book, and when I opened the parcel and it was indeed a book. Attached to the book was a small card with the following text:
Philip Baker, 26 July 1940 – 19 August 2017
This volume was published in February 2017, Philip Baker received it in March and had the satisfaction to see that all the data he compiled in London in the 1980ies – the famous “dossier bleu” – are now available in print (see p. VIII).
We mourn for our dear friend Philip and present this book to you to honour his memory.
