Angkor Observed by Dawn Rooney $23.00

"There Before You" - Angkor Observed by Dawn Rooney

From the Orchid Guides Series

Orchid Guides comprise of specialized guides to various subjects or geographical areas. Standard size is 23 by 12.7 centimetres, or 9 by 5 inches unless otherwise stated.

Angkor Observed. This is the second book in the series There Before You. It consists of a selection of early travellers? impressions of the Khmer empire?s ancient, 12th century capital and the legends that inspired the majestic stone temples of Angkor, which were described by a visitor in the 1920s as ?the most impressive sight in the world of edifices?. The work brings to the reader out-of-print impression of early western travellers, and also includes tales and legends based on an oral tradition, published for the first time.

It serves as a guide-book companion, as an introduction to Angkor and as supplementary reading following a visit. It is also of interest to the arm-chair traveller unable to venture as far afield as Cambodia. The author has a PhD in art history, and has written several books on Southeast Asian art and culture, including Angkor. An Introduction to the Temples (1994).

?Go to Angkor, my friend, to its ruins and its dreams.? P. Jeannerat de Beerski, 1923.
