comment What were the demographics and economics of South-East Asian islands around year 1400?
Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs and Steel covers some of this, at least with regard to the Malayan peninsula and the Indonesian and Papuan archipelago. I don't recall him mentioning the Philippines anything more than cursorily, but it would at least give you some of the starting points for researching further…

@T.E.D. Fair points that I'd overlooked. Thanks for reminding me :o)

@AndrewGrimm In the 1860s/1870s, the British Empire was near its peak, whereas the USA was still recovering from a civil war. I'd be very surprised if it had even occurred to anyone to consider American English, in much the same way that the opposite would probably be the case since World War II :)
