Reading Zen in the Rocks: The Japanese Dry Landscape Garden, Berthier, Francois; Parkes, Graham (Translated with an Essay by)
19 Berthier, Francois; Parkes, Graham (Translated with an Essay by)
Reading Zen in the Rocks: The Japanese Dry Landscape Garden
Chicago University of Chicago Press 2000 0226044114 / 9780226044118 1st Hardcover Very Good Very Good 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
xi, 166 pp., illus., biblio., index; 23 cm. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Top edge lightly soiled. First Edition, First Printing. Dust jacket, with creased flaps, protected in a mylar book cover. "The Japanese dry landscape garden has long attracted--and long baffled--viewers from the West. While museums across the United States are replicating these 'Zen rock gardens' in their courtyards and miniature versions of the gardens are now office decorations, they remain enigmatic, their philosophical and aesthetic significance obscured. Reading Zen in the Rocks, the classic essay on the karesansui garden by French art historian François Berthier, has now been translated by Graham Parkes, giving English-speaking readers a concise, thorough, and beautifully illustrated history of these gardens. Berthier's guided tour of the famous garden of Ryoanji (Temple) in Kyoto leads him into an exposition of the genre, focusing on its Chinese antecedents and affiliations with Taoist ideas and Chinese landscape painting. He traces the roles of Shinto and Zen Buddhism in the evolution of the garden and also considers how manual laborers from the lowest classes in Japan had a hand in creating some of its highest examples. Parkes contributes an equally original and substantive essay which delves into the philosophical importance of rocks and their 'language of stone,' delineating the difference between Chinese and Japanese rock gardens and their relationship to Buddhism. Together, the two essays compose one of the most comprehensive and elegantly written studies of this haunting garden form. Reading Zen in the Rocks is fully illustrated with photographs of all the major gardens discussed, making it a handsome addition to the library of anyone interested in gardening, Eastern philosophy, and the combination of the two that the karesansui so superbly represents. / François Berthier is professor of Japanese art and history at the Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales in Paris. Graham Parkes is professor of philosophy at the University of Hawaii." - Publisher.
