Most widely held works by A Foucher
The life of the Buddha : according to the ancient texts and monuments of India by A Foucher( Book )

24 editions published between 1949 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like many other great religions of the world, Buddhism arose from the teachings of one man: in this case, Prince Siddhartha of Kapilavastu, later called Sakyamuni or Gautama. This book, turning to Buddhist scriptures and artistic monuments for its sources, presents the story of his life, so nearly as the facts can be determined, in a judicious, straightforward narrative designed for Western readers. While it does accept the pious myths and supernatural events as necessarily true, and does not accept to explain the nuances of Buddhist doctrine, it pays adequate attention to their place in the Master's career. The result is a volume of great interest to all concerned with the development and influence of Eastern thought and culture
