Summary
The Iconography of Tibetan Lamaism was first published twenty years ago for the express purpose of ""giving the student interested in Tibetan iconography a general idea of the development of Buddhism into Lamaism, and making easier the identification of the various deities of the Tibetan pantheon."" Although interest in the field has grown over the years, the book has remained the only authoritative work of its kind. Long out of print and rare even in the second-hand bookshops it is now being offered in a new, revised and enlarged edition to meet the persistent and increasing demand for it.Thi
