2002, First Edition. San Francisco : Mandala ; Enfield : Airlift. An exceptional copy; fine in an equally fine dw, now mylar-sleeved. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new.; 127 pages; Physical desc. : xiii, 127 p. : col. ill., col. ports. ; 31 cm. Subject: Gautama Buddha --Pictorial works. Summary: With over sixty stunning plates of original art, Prince of Dharma is a bold and glorious rendering of the life of the Buddha. Author Ranchor Prime (Ramayana: A Tale of Gods & Demons; Vedic Ecology) brings to life the inspired art of award-winning artist B. G. Sharma (Form of Beauty) with a sensitive, immensely readable, and rarely seen biography of the Buddha. From his birth as a prince to his final lesson in achieving nirvana, Sharma captures it all. Ornamented throughout with quotes from A Dhammapada for Contemplation by Ajahn Munindo, the combination of Prime's story and Sharma's art culminate in the most unique contribution to the canon of Buddhist literature and art that has emerged since the Buddha took birth thousands of years ago.
