Title: "Buddhism in Tibet" by Emil Schlagintweit, LL.D. (1863)

Description: The entire text of a mid-nineteenth century work on Tibetan Buddhism. Despite the sketchy knowledge of Buddhism in Europe at the time, this has a surprising level of detail about the subject, due to the pioneering fieldwork of the authors' brothers. Some of the information in this book about sacred documents, divination methods, calendrical systems, as well as details of rituals and ritual objects is unique.
