Description

From the dust jacket:

When it first appeared in 1938, Buddhist Art in Siam was acclaimed not only as a pioneering work in a complex and difficult field but also as a lucid explanation of the Eastern art tradition and as an exhaustive historical study of great significance. Since that time, although unfortunately long out of print, it has maintained a high reputation among stdents and admirers of Oriental art. In fact, it has become a collector’s item of considerable rariy and value, and its reappearance here in a complete and unabridged photographic reproduction is a event of decided importance.
