Comment:
I have not seen any of these editions, but an excerpt i read reveals that it is about phallic symbolism in various cultures, including "The Phallus in California," an early look at phallic charmstones of the California Indians. For companion volumes of the same era see Clifford Howard and Hargrave Jennings -- and see also under the letter "A" the anonymous nine-volume "Nature Worship and Mystical Series" on Phallism, Phallicism, Nature Worship, Serpent Worship, Temple Architecture, and Sex Worship privately printed in London from 1889-1891 and which bibliographers have attributed to Jennings and/or Rocco/Hudson.

Reprinted circa 1965, "Paris" [probably not Paris]

Comment:
I have not seen this book, but i very strongly suspect that it is merely a retitled reprint of the entry above. See also the entry above and the entry for the anonymous "Nature Worship and Mystical Series" books under the letter "A." CY

Rowland, Benjamin
Art and Architecture of India: Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain
[-], 1953; revised and updated several times, including:
Pelican Books (Pelican History of Art Series), 1977
LC 73-125676 (for Pelican edition)

Keywords:
houses of worship, funerary-cemetery-burial sites, sacred site tourism, religion, myth, folklore, cosmology, ancient, medieval, modern, Asia

Comment:
Benjamin Rowland, who died in 1972, was a professor of fine art at Harvard. He writes extensively here about the vushtu-purana-mandala or Hindu temple plan. For instance: "The plan [of a Hindu temple] is prescribed by the most elaborate geomantic rites designed to ensure the security of the shrine on the earth upon which it is built and to make it in every way a proper microcosm which the plan and shape are intended to reproduce. The plan is laid out in a square, the perfect magic diagram repeating the imagined shape of the world. The square or mandala is divided into a number of smaller squares dedicated to the gods concentrated around the central Brahma figure and with specific reference to the influence and positions of the earth and the heavenly bodies in the eight directions of space." And so forth. There is also great bit on the numerological symbolism of the Borobudor temple in Indonesia, and the book contains an excellent bibliography of choice source material. BC


Rudgley, Richard
The Lost Civilizations of the Stone Age
The Free Press, 1999

Keywords:
natural sacred sites, megaliths, petroglyphs, funerary-cemetery-burial sites, archaeoastronomical observatories, religion, myth, religious iconography, prehistoric, Europe

Comment:
The author studied Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Oxford and received a British Museum Award for a previous book he wrote on the use of psychoactive substances. The tone is excellent: passionate about the high achievements of Paleolithic and Neolithic cultures and rigorous enough to present a wide array of evidence for his insights. His chapter on the development of number symbols/writing out of the use of token objects for record keeping and accounting was all new to me. Very fascinating stuff. There is a chapter called 'The Signs of Old Europe: Writing or Pre-writing' on the Transylvanian Vinca script. There are also chapters on Stone Age surgery, mining science, Ocher -- the blood of the earth, and Venus figurines. I recommend it for content and as an example of good science writing. DW
