Sherman E. Lee's A History of Far Eastern Art, for decades regarded as the premier compendium of the visual arts of Asia, is the only book of its scope in English -- a one-volume account that covers art from the Indus River to Japan and Java between the fifth millennium B.C.E. and 1850 C.E. It offers a clear and comprehensive study of the three major artistic traditions of Asia -- Indian, Chinese, and Japanese -- as well as a cogent overview of their interrelationships and their influences on, and from, the neighboring traditions of Southeast Asia and Indonesia, Central Asia, and Korea. Copious illustrations reveal the evolution of styles and artistic traditions, providing in themselves an unrivaled panorama of Asian achievement in art. This new edition of A History of Far Eastern Art takes full account of the astonishing recent archaeological discoveries, as these have confirmed, modified, or overturned previous interpretations. Many of these new finds are included among the hundreds of reproductions.

Presenting a dozen narratives—journal entries, letters, and diaries—with an introduction to each, and with historic photographs, postcards, and woodcuts, this book is the essential compilation of the most gripping first-person accounts of the early years of America's most cherished national park.
