Four Faces of Siva – The Detective Story of A Vanished Race
Author: Robert Casey
270 pages. Frontispiece has an illustration from a photograph. There is also a collection of very good early black & white photographs of the Cambodian temples. The author visits and tries to piece together an understanding of these then mysterious temples hidden amid the forests and gives us a romantic rather than scientific travelogue. Coloured maps on the end-papers, very nice gold titles and decorative foliage on the spine, with embossed temple on the front cover.
Embossed hardcover, gilt titles and design on spine. Previous owners blind stamp to front free endpaper. Cover with light edge wear, pages very clean. Rear endpapers slightly stained by colour in the cloth cover. Overall in very good clean condition. 9 by 6 inches.
