Description

Tokyo: The Maruzen Kabushiki-Kaisha, and Shanghai: The Christian Literature Society, and London: Eugene L. Morice, 9 Cecil Court. C.1912, revised & enlarged edition, two volumes, publ's green moire-patterned cloth gilt illustrated & lettered on spine and front covers, 548pp, one folding color map, 23 plates and many illustrations in the text, heavily footnoted and indexed, some cover wear, one corner slightly damaged, front fly of volume one nearly detached, else vg. Rare. "Chinese Gordon" was highly praised by Manly P. Hall as a rare example of a Christian who had true a ecumenical understanding of the East. In Manly Hall's preface to his memorial booklet he writes: "Fifty years ago there were antiquarian book dealers in most of the larger American cities. Each of these establishments was presided over by a genteel bibliophile who conveyed the impression of vast learning, and over-flowing hospitality. New books were seldom to be found in his stock, for he specialized in first editions, autographed works of literary immortals, pamphlets, broadsides, and fugitive fragments from famous presses. He catered to scholars seeking elusive reference material, and avid collectors hoping to add new treasures to their private libraries. It was while browsing in the pleasant chaos of my favorite second-hand book store, that I was introduced to the writings of E. A. Gordon. On a heavily burdened shelf stood a set of two volumes, octavo in faded blue cloth and badly shaken at the hinges. Stepping closer I read the title, The :World-Healers," or The Lotus Gospel and its Bodhisattvas. Turning a few pages, my attention was attracted to the authur's preface, which convinced me that E.A. Gordon had an extraordinary grasp of both Western and Eastern religions, especially mystical Christianity and esoteric Buddhism, (from E.A. Gordon, Pioneer in East-West Religious Understanding. A Memorial Tribute By Manly P. Hall., LA, PRS. 1975).
