About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Rock-Temples of Elephanta or Gh‚r‚purÓ.

Description:

Quarto. [4], 80, [4]pp (Publisher's advertisement). Original green buckram with gold lettering on front cover. Remarkable pictorial survey of the rock cut temples of Elephanta island. The Elephanta island was so named by the Portuguese, after the statue of an elephant near the landing area of the island. These rock cut temples dedicated to Shiva Mahadeva are rich in sculptural content. These caves house rock cut temples dating back to the 5th century CE. Here, Indian art has found one of its most perfect expressions, particularly the huge high reliefs in the main cave. This work is splendidly illustrated throughout with 13 mounted albumen prints and 6 one-sided lithographic plates specially bound-in (including one folding plan of the Temple). Some rubbing and discoloration along edges of binding. Endpapers foxed. Previous owner's inscription on free front endpaper indicating how the book got to this country: "P. A. Paymaster C. Thompson, U. S. N. U. S. Ship Monongahela Bombay, India, December 31, 1877." Frontispiece and plate #13 faded. Moderate and sporadic foxing throughout. Binding in overall fair to good-, interior in good+ condition. Bookseller Inventory #
