Studies in the grammatical tradition in Tibet by Roy Andrew Miller( )

12 editions published in 1976 in English and Dutch and held by 1,415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume reprints -- with additions and corrections -- seven papers originally published 1962-1973, on the indigenous grammars of Tibet and their linguistic tradition. Two ancient treatises commonly attributed to "Thon-mi Sambho|#x1E6D;a" are studied extensively, as well as extracts from many other Tibetan texts, with translations, commentaries, and detailed bibliographical data, covering a wide range of linguistic doctrines, from the early 11th to the beginning of the 20th century. The final article incorporates a complete grammatical sketch of Classical Tibetan; this, together with the comp

Japanese ceramics by Roy Andrew Miller( Book )

29 editions published between 1900 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Japan's accomplishments in the ceramic arts through the centuries are among her most important artistic achievements, yet for all but a few specialists the entire field of Japanese ceramics has long remained a wilderness with few guideposts indeed. This has been due partly to the language barrier, but also it has been the result of the many sub-divisions and minor categories under which Japanese ceramic wares have traditionally been classified. 'Japanese ceramics' for the first time successfully breaks through both these barriers to the enjoyment of Japan's fine pottery and porcelains, presenting all the important developments from earliest times down to present, illustrated by a lavish collection of large, painstakingly reproduced black-and-white plates, a rich assortment of color plates selected for their faithful representation of the originals, and an extremely large selection of smaller illustrations showing representative examples of each of the many wares discussed in the interesting text. Though the text presents its account historically, its chief emphasis is on Japanese ceramic wares as art, to be viewed against their own historical background, but above all as art deserving study and appreciation in its own right. Another important innovation of the text is its treatment of Japanese ceramics under a relatively small number of major categories, bringing understandable order to the maze of intricate kiln and other designations which have often rendered the field needlessly obscure. The authoritativeness of the text and the authenticity of the specimens illustrated--many of them rare items from private collections seldom to be seen even in Japan--are assumed by the eminence of the scholars of whose work the book has grown. A map of kiln sites and an index, complete with Japanese characters for proper names and ware designations, make the volume one for reference as well as aesthetic enjoyment." -- Publisher's description

"The Japanese language is often under attack by linguists, translators and even amateurs for having a seemingly vague set of rules, making it near impossible to ever fully grasp all of the language's facets. Roy Andrew Miller guides the reader through these often contradictory allegations by evaluating Japanese in the light of linguistic science. He also pays particular attention to the problems inherent in certain systems for describing the language, and to questions posed by published translations from Japanese literature."--Bloomsbury Publishing
