    Edwin Arnold: The Poems of Edwin Arnold: Containing The Light of Asia; Pearls of the Faith, or Islam's Rosary; and The Indian Song of Songs To Which is Added Indian Poetry. (New York: Hurst & Co., [nd]), 425 pages, padded brown cloth with gilt lettering on the spine and front board, 12mo (5" x 7.5"), clear plastic protective sleeve on boards. Floral endpapers. All edges gilt. The Light of Asia was Arnold's wildly popular meditation on Eastern philosophy, especially the teachings and life of the Buddha, and it is included in this attractive compilation of Arnold's poetry. The book is in very good condition, with minor edge wear present along with minimal toning of the text. A beautiful collection of poetry from a popular nineteenth century Englishman.
