Excerpt from The Sacred City of Anuradhapura: With Forty-Six Illustrations

In presenting this enlarged second edition, I am glad that I have realised my hope as expressed in November, 1904, in the preface to my first attempt of "The Sacred City of Anuradhapura," having 25 pages and five illustrations.

The main object of this book is to make known to the world the true and most authentic history of the Sacred City of Anuradhapura, that has been undergoing desecration at the hands of misinformed officials of the Government of Ceylon.

The Buddhists of Asia love this holy City founded three centuries prior to the birth of Jesus Christ. Those people living in the remotest parts of the world who are interested in antiquarian things and archaeology visit this City. And there is no other City upon the universe that has maintained its position as a Sacred City, replete with sacred objects of diverse kind, for a period of 2,200 years, except this City, the property of the Buddhasasana, built and maintained by the Sinhalese nation.

I have refrained from writing on the political City of Anuradhapura as it is still unexplored; and I expect to publish a separate book on that subject after the Ceylon Government has caused the clearing and excavation of that buried City,, which deserves prompt attention from the Government.
