3 Okakura, Kakuzo The Ideals of the East: with Special Reference to the Art of Japan
080481452X / 9780804814522; Japan, Kakuzo Okakura wrote more than 60 years ago, is a museum of Asiatic civilization, and yet more than a museum, because the singular genius of the race leads it to dwell on all phases of the ideals of the past, which welcomes the new without losing the old. He wrote of that broad expanse of love for the Ultimate and Universal, which is the common thought-inheritence of the Asiatic races, enabling them to produce all the great religions of the world. In writing of the national reawakening, Okakura worried about "that portentous danger with which Western encroachment on Asiatic soil threatened our national existence. " This little classic undoubtedly reflects his concern - but it is also one of the best assurances that Japan will remain true to the Asiatic soul even while it flourishes as one of the industrial giants of the world. Drawings at the top of many pages.; 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall
