Overview

The first and most complete exposition of the religious iconography of India, this indispensable reference work was written in 1810 and aptly conveys the spirit of East Indian myths, legends, fables, and the intricate symbolism which distinguishes the Eastern mind. Here the great Indian classics, such as The Ramayana and The Mahabharata, are revealed as epical works comparable to the Odyssey and the Iliad of Homer. A "must" for the new generation of Orientalists, students of philosophy and comparative religion, and collectors of Asiatic art, this is possibly the most complete and important work on the theology, mythology, and ancient philosophical beliefs of the Hindus.
