About This Item

Paris: Henri Laurens, 1910. Folio, full-page plates including four woodblocks in colour; contemporary cloth a little foxed. 'C'est sans doute par un effet de la mentalité particulière des Extrême-Orientaux que ~ le monde leur est apparu, non point comme un élément incomplet, soumis à leur orgueil par un créateur absolu, mais comme un ensemble frémissant dont la vie s'écoulait, avec ses subtilités, ses beautés et ses douleurs, dans une activité géante ~ mais nulle part cette idée n'a reçu d'expression plus magnifique, plus puissante, plus claire aussi et mieux ordonnée, que dans le bouddhisme.'.
