First edition, first impression, of Suzuki's first own book in English. His work aimed "to refute the many wrong opinions which are entertained by Western critics and to awake interest among scholars of comparative religion" (Preface).

Suzuki (1870-1966) was an influential Japanese writer, whose publications on Buddhism, Zen (Chan), and Shin were instrumental in spreading interest in Far Eastern philosophy to the West, where he taught and lectured at universities. He later joined the Theosophical Society Adyar, where he became an active theosophist.
