Description

About the Book

Ananda K. Coomaraswamy's Early Indian Architecture is a study of the subject based mainly on the information as available in early Pali literature and as represented in the reliefs of Bharhut, Sanchi and Amaravati. The works is divided into two parts: Part I deal with cities and city-gates, etc. while Part II is on the Bodhi-gharas i.e., representation of the Bodhi-tree with or without a temple structure. Coomaraswamy has assembled the data systematically and in the process brought out details not only from literature but also form sculptural representations. He has confined himself not only to the early texts and material but has also made use of information from later examples, particularly forts, etc. The details about the lay-out of early cities, along with their different components, architectural terms as available in early texts and illustrations with copious notes on each have made this work invaluable for those interested in serious study of the subject. This monograph is a must for student of archaeology including art and architecture.

Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
