This book combines magnificent illustrations of the treasures preserved at Nara, the eighth-century center of Buddhism in Japan, with Langdon Warner’s illuminating commentary. First published as a collection of plates with a separate text, the work was acclaimed by critics. This single volume makes Warner’s brilliant discussions, the fine illustrations, and his perceptive analyses of each of them available to a wider audience.
