About this Item

Second edition. Illustrated with eight plates including frontispiece and six foldouts. Numerous illustrations throughout text. 8vo, publisher’s original light buff cloth with lettering and pictorial illustrations on the spine and upper cover in dark green. l, 598 pp. A very fine copy, as pristine, internally with no evidence of use, the binding fresh with no wear or fading, one tiny mark on the upper cover more likely an original publisher's flaw then an abrasion. One of the first authors to chronicle and explain Tibetan Buddhism for Western readers, L. Austine Waddell draws his information from his own extensive travels in Tibet. The extensive illustrations help make this a fascinating and attractive survey of a complex subject. "The special characteristics of the book are its detailed accounts of the extenal facts and curious symbolism of Buddhism, and its analyses of the internal movements leading to Lamaism and its sects and cults." [From the Preface to the First Edition]. Bookseller Inventory # 25962
