Bibliography of Ananda Kentish Coomaraswamy documents the remarkably productive career of one of the great minds of the twentieth century. This comprehensive and accurate bibliography is the result of more than twenty years of devoted research and scholarship. Its publication is an event of the first importance for all scholars of Indian art and religion. Moreover, it is an equally invaluable reference work for anyone concerned with the study of comparative religion, mythology, traditional metaphysics, iconography, and symbolism, in general. It describes in detail American, English, and Indian first editions of 95 books and pamphlets by Coomaraswamy, with descriptions of 96 books containing contributions by him, and more than 900 contributions by him to periodicals and newspapers (as well as translations of his writings). It also lists 420 reviews of Coomaraswamy's books and 216 other items about him and his work. All entries are fully annotated and a complete index is provided.
This is the 14th Volume in the Series of the Collected Works of A.K. Coomaraswamy in the IGNCA's Publications Programme.
