Feng Shui: The Science of Sacred Landscape in China

The vital currents, influenced by the heavenly bodies, which permeate the earth’s surface and regulate its cycles of fertility, were recognized by the Chinese in early times through the traditional science and practice of Feng-shui. Modern concern about the threat to the earth’s continued life and fertility has brought about a revival of interest in this science which was based on principles of cooperation between men and nature. First published in 1873, Ernest J. Eitel’s Feng-Shui remains the best classical treatise on the subject ever written. As such, it offers a unique perspective on a subject that has since been heavily commercialized in the West. This edition includes nine engravings of Chinese landscapes by nineteenth century artist Thomas Allom.
