The Presence of Siva

Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1981.

Paperback. 9 1/4" X 6". 514pp, plus 32 plates bound at rear. Rather heavy wear to binding, with damstaining to binding and text block throughout, creasing, and edgewear. Tears to upper edges of beginning pages. Rippling to pages due to exposure to moisture. Extensive notes and underlining throughout. Binding is sound. A very worn copy, but readable. Illustrated with photographs by C. Praful Patel. From rear: "By retelling and interweaving the many myths that continue to convey Siva's presence as a living god in India today, Professor Kramrisch unfolds the paradoxes in the nature of consciousness itself."
