Alone with the hairy Ainu. Or, 3800 miles on a pack saddle in Yezo and a cruise to the Kurile islands by Arnold Henry Savage Landor( )

1 edition published in 1893 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A. H. Savage Landor (1867-1925), the grandson of the author Walter Savage Landor (1775-1864), was born and educated in Florence. He abandoned his painting studies in Paris to travel around the world, and visited Asia, the Middle East and South America, supporting himself as he went by painting portraits of people he encountered. Landor became a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 1892, and a Member of the Royal Institution in 1897. This volume, first published in 1893, deals with his adventurous experiences among the indigenous Ainu, the 'hairy men' who lived in the northern 'home islands' of Japan and in Sakhalin, the island whose possession was disputed by Japan and Russia for two hundred years. Landor insisted on 'doing in Ainuland as the Ainu does'. He describes his journey through the Ainu territory and gives a detailed and ethnographically aware account of its people and their culture

Introduction to the history of Indian Buddhism by Eugène Burnouf( )

1 edition published in 1911 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most influential work on Buddhism to be published in the nineteenth century, Introduction à l'histoire du Buddhisme indien, by the great French scholar of Sanskrit Eugène Burnouf, set the course for the academic study of Buddhism, and Indian Buddhism in particular, for the next hundred years. First published in 1844, the masterwork was read by some of the most important thinkers of the time, including Schopenhauer and Nietzsche in Germany and Emerson and Thoreau in America. But a century and a half on, Burnouf's text has largely been forgotten. All that changes with Katia Buffetrille and Donald S. Lopez Jr.'s English translation of this foundational text. Reemerging here as a vibrant artifact of intellectual history and as a progenitor of the often colorful genealogy of Buddhist studies, Introduction to the History of Indian Buddhismprovides a clear view of how the religion was understood in the early decades of the nineteenth century. Burnouf was an impeccable scholar, and his vision, especially of the Buddha, continues to profoundly shape our modern understanding of Buddhism. Indeed, the work offers a wellspring of still-valuable information and insight into the theory and practice of Buddhism. In reintroducing Burnouf to a new generation of Buddhologists, Buffetrille and Lopez have revived a seminal text in the history of Orientalism
Youth; its education, regimen, and hygiene by G. Stanley Hall( )

2 editions published in 1912 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I have often been asked to select and epitomize the practical and especially the pedagogical conclusions of my large volumes on Adolescence, published in 1904, in such form that they may be available at a minimum cost to parents, teachers, reading circles, normal schools, and college classes, by whom even the larger volumes have been often used. This, with the cooperation of the publishers and with the valuable aid of Superintendent C.N. Kendall of Indianapolis, I have tried to do, following in the main the original text, with only such minor changes and additions as were necessary to bring the topics up to date, and adding a new chapter on moral and religious education. For the scientific justification of my educational conclusions I must, of course, refer to the larger volumes. The last chapter is not in "Adolescence," but is revised from a paper printed elsewhere"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

The little book of life after death by Gustav Theodor Fechner( )

1 edition published in 1904 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The idea worked out in this little book is that the spirits of the dead continue to exist as individuals in the living. The idea appealing to a series of kindred thoughts lying ready in my own mind, and engendering new ones, finally assumed the present shape, enlarged by a kind of spontaneous evolution into the idea of a higher life of spirits in God. The book provides a philosophy of religion in general, and especially examines the doctrine of immortality"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
