A compendium of information about the characteristics and histories of China's various religio-philosophical schools. Very interesting selection of illustrations from a variety of sources. Remains the prime reference in English in this subject and a fascinating read. In two main parts: Vols 1-3: Disposal of the Dead; Vols 4-6: On the Soul and Ancestral Worship. Anonymous and scarce 1930s Peking reprint of the Leiden original. Some mottling and marks to covers. The occasional mark inside but generally clean.
