“Lin Yutang has collected an 1100 page treasury of the wisdom and ideals of life that have guided the thinking and living of the millions in Asia for centuries. Here, in authoritative translations, are the best of the sacred books of Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism. In addition, a generous selection of poetry and stories represents the beautiful non-sacred literature of China and India. The result is an incomparable compilation that reaches the depths of our common human experience.”

This is a 1942 edition of The Wisdom of China and India by Lin Yutang with original dist cover. A handful of pages of underlining and check marks. The first page as the name of the previous owner dated 1964. Very little foxing of the pages. The dust cover has wear along the top and bottom edges and some tears on the front corners at the binding. The book binding is strong and the book cover in good condition with some wear along the bottom edges.This is a great book to learn the ageless wisdom of the East!
