Angkor, an introduction by George Cœdès( Book )

47 editions published between 1943 and 1993 in 5 languages and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many books have been written about Angkor and many more are doubtless still to come, but few are likely to equal in scholarship and charm the writings of M. George Coedes. Originally published in French in Hanoi, in 1943, this work was revised and reprinted in Paris, in 1947. The English translation has been made by Emily Floyd Gardiner, who has lived in Saigon and has firsthand knowledge of Angkor. With the approval of the author some cuts have been made in the text and some passages have been condensed. The book in its present form omits the history of the changing archaeological theories about Angkor, which are not of special interest to the general reader. It is not a tourist guide, but rather an introduction to the background of this ancient capital and the Khmer civilization and is designed to provide the ever-increasing numbers of English-speaking visitors with a brief summary of Angkor in its historical and religious setting. The author himself says, 'I have tried to let these great stone structures speak for themselves, because, in the minds of the Khmers, they were never just inert buildings without souls, but monuments with a vital quality that still attracts all who see them.'

Texts of Greek and Latin authors on the Far East : from the 4th c. B.C.E. to the 14th c. C.E. by George Cœdès( Book )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Latin and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume comprises a unique collection of Greek and Latin texts containing references to the Far East. Compiled by George Coedes (1886-1969) and published by him in 1910, these well-selected writings have waited until now for an English translation. The texts range from `Ctesias' in the Fourth Century BCE to Byzantine writers of the 14th Century CE like Nicephorus Gregoras. There are allusions in literary works, both prose and verse, as well as extracts from geographers and historians, some tangential, others giving in-depth descriptions. Even when these are based on second or third hand information they are the basis for any study of the Far East seen through Western eyes. Coedes collected his information very thoroughly and his presentation of the material betokens a sound grasp of all the highly diverse though related literature. The Greek and Latin texts in this volume have been translated direct from the original languages by John Sheldon with an introductory essay by
