About this Item

Edge and corner wear to the dj, lightly scuffed and scratched, chipping at the top of the spine of the dj, corners are gently bumped and rubbed, lightly shelf worn, overall a very clean used first edition (stated)! Beautiful bright red cloth with gilt lettering on the spine. Very very rare and out-of-print! Dj is nicely preserved in a brand new protective mylar plastic cover! Extremely scarce and hard-to-find! 151 very clean unmarked and uncreased historical pages! "The Avimaraka is a Sanskrit play, the first manuscript of which was discovered in South India in 1912. It tells the playful story of a young outcaste who falls in love with a princess and by means of a magic ring enters her bedroom and stays there for one year. The tone is light, gay and unconventional in its easy and happy attitude toward love. If the play is by Bhasa (I think it might well be but the question cannot be settled for certain) then it belongs to the second or third century A.D., predating by two or three hundred years the plays of Kalidasa." ---- from the Preface Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
