London: Trübner & Co., 1880. FIRST EDITION. Trubner Oriental Series. Item #12995
Binding shows handling and generally soiled; internals free of lining or marking; VERY GOOD cloth copy with Trubner's gilt series vignette adorning the front panel. 361 pages, plus Trubner catalogue appended. William Simpson's copy (author of THE BUDDHIST WHEEL and others) with his bookplate -- most interesting -- and his signature with date just above the errata page in the prelims. Excellent notes and references in his hand are to be found at the rear of the volume, but not a single jot within the text itself, a fine practice often followed by Dr. Charles Muses as well.
