RICHARD, William L
The Tanjur and The Kanjur: A Dissertation on Sanskrit, the Language of Antiquity, and on the corollary question, "Where was the Cradle of the Aryan race?"
La Casa Amaraca, 1920. Near Fine. Hardcover. First edition. Oblong octavo. Printed wrapper: 7, [1]pp., photographic frontispiece portrait and unpaged (approximately forty-one) gelatin silver photographs of the Sanskrit manuscripts. Contemporary custom binding by the Atelier Bindery in full pale brown morocco with four raised bands and black morocco spine label with title and decorations of dragons and swastikas in gilt, dentelles in elaborate gilt floral pattern, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Top corners slightly bumped, very near fine in custom cloth slipcase. One of 500 numbered copies, this copy unnumbered. Brief dissertation about the author's copies of rare Tibetan Sanskrit manuscripts. Apparently issued as an eight page pamphlet, this copy has been enhanced with the photographs and seems likely to have been the author's own copy. Attractive and beautifully bound volume. *OCLC* locates two copies of the pamphlet, but nothing with accompanying illustrations. (Yale and NYPL). [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: Between the Covers (betweenthecoversrarebooks) [Gloucester City, New Jersey, United States]
