PRINCE SIDDARTHA: The Japanese Buddha.
Boston/Chicago: Congregational Sunday School and Publishing Society, 1893. FIRST EDITION. Deco front panel with stupa and orthodox swastika; covers are worn, but binding is firm; text is excellent; VERY GOOD CLOTH COPY. A work said to have been first issued in Japan in 1665, this semi-biography is here for the first time translated into English though hardly a literal translation. Noting the publisher, it appears that much interpolation has been added to reflect some comparative contrasts with Christianity. Introduction by Rev. F.E. Clark. 309 pages. Small octavo. Item #15085
