First Edition. Volume IV in the "Ars Asiatica" series published under the aegis of L'École Française d'Extrème-Orient. A trained architect and one of the founding fathers of the EFEO school of archaeology, Parmentier's work on Cham culture and later at Angkor were key in the interpretation of the early civilizations of Indochina.
Folio. Near contemporary sheep-backed patterned paper boards, wrappers bound in.
Map frontispiece and 30 photogravure plates.
Light browning, spine scuffed and splitting at the head, boards spotted, but overall very good.
