All literary communications to be addressed to the Editors of THE ORIENT LIBRARY, c/o DR. S. A. KAPADIA, ORIENTAL SECRETARY, NORTHBROOK SOCIETY, 185 PICCADILLY, LONDON, W. The object of the Editors of this Series is a very definite one. They desire above all things that, in their humble way, these books shall be the ambassadors of good-will and understanding between East and West, the old world of Thought and the new of Action. In this endeavour, and in their own sphere, they are but followers of the highest example in the land. They are confident that a deeper knowledge of the great ideals and lofty philosophy of Oriental thought may help to a revival of that true spirit of Charity which neither despises nor fears the nations of another creed and colour. Finally, in thanking press and public for the very cordial reception given to the "Wisdom of the East" Series, they wish to state that no pains have been spared to secure the best specialists for the treatment of the various subjects at hand. The Athenæum.—"We wish that there were more of them; they are dreamy, lifelike, and fascinating." Pall Mall Gazette.—"No translation of this important work has been made since the beginning of the eighteenth century." Manchester Courier.—"Worthy of close study by all who would penetrate to the depth of Eastern thought and feeling." Literary Guide.—"We wish success to this little series of books." Outlook.—"This Series is published to help in the process of renewing the spiritual and moral life of the West." The Scotsman.—"This Series should not fail to please readers of the more studious sort." Southport Guardian.—"This Series will find considerable favour with all Students of Eastern Literature and Eastern Philosophy." Bristol Mercury.—"We commend these little books to all who imagine that there is no knowledge worth having outside Europe and America." Glasgow Herald.—"This new Series has a definite and lofty aim, and is deserving of support. The books are small, cheap, and well adapted for the pocket. Every page is regularly refreshing and stimulating." Field.—"Such books are valuable aids to the understanding of a far-off age and people, and have a great interest for the student of literature." Irish Times.—"The volumes are charming in form, low in price, and excellent in matter."   LONDON: JOHN MURRAY, ALBEMARLE STREET, W.
