Signed by Author
SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR with a rather unusual and somewhat rude dedication (appropriate given the genre however). Some annotations on a few pages, edgewear and some corners turned, otherwise still a good solid copy - from the publisher:"For over seven years, William Burrill has been baring his soul (and any other damn thing he wants) in his 'Naked Eye' column in Toronto's 'eye Weekly'. It has been a rocky road, seeing the world through Bill's bloodshot eyes. The bumpy night usually starts in the late afternoon in some bar and ends -- well, who can remember? Now in this book, Burrill finally has chance to remember in this collection of very personal rants, ruminations and observations. Burrill's been everywhere, from Las Vegas (where he lost it at the casino) to Mexico (where he was simply lost for a while) and lived to tell at least some of his adventures along the way. Without fear, but often with a fair amount of loathing, he takes on the latest government policies (he has run for mayor of Toronto three times); life as a private Fairy Tale Detective (Humpty didn't fall, he was pushed), and religions both organised (If Jesus played Caesar's Palace) and disorganised (How to be a Zen Stooge-Master). He is staring back at Death (actually it was a killer migraine), followed Hemingway's trail to Cuba, and made thousands of readers laugh (or become really pissed off). Bill Burrill is funny, irreverent, charismatic and insightful. He is also dangerous, not only to himself, but also to those around him. BEWARE."

Hardcover 1st edition, in truly fine condition - clean and tight with only a touch of shelfwear. From the publisher: "Transmitted from China to Japan in the 13th century, Zen Buddhism not only introduced religious practices but also literature, calligraphy, philosophy, and ink painting to Japanese disciples. This elegant book discusses these fields as they combined to encompass the evocative practice of figure painting within Zen Buddhism in medieval Japan. Focusing on forty-seven exceptional Japanese and Chinese paintings from the 12th to the 16th centuries??which together illustrate the story of the ?awakening” of Zen art??the book features essays by distinguished scholars that discuss the life and art within Zen monastic and lay communities. The authors explore the ideology underlying the development of Zen’s own pantheon of characters created to imagine the Buddha’s wisdom and offer fresh insights into the role of the visual arts within Zen practice as it developed in Japan in close dialogue with the Asian continent.

Hardcover 1st edition - appears NEW AND UNREAD! From the publisher:"It is tradition in Zen monasteries to chant a lineage of male teachers from the Buddha's time to the present day. As Buddhism took root in the West, increasing numbers of American Buddhists began to ask: "What about the women?" Scholarly research has uncovered accounts of extraordinary women Buddhists, many of whom were recognized by their contemporaries for their powerful practice but excluded from their place in history. Drawing on these discoveries, several Buddhist centers have created women's lineages of their own, and it is this bright thread of untold legend that Sallie Tisdale follows in this groundbreaking work. By rescuing some of the most significant and inspiring tales from obscurity, Tisdale traces women Buddhist masters and teachers across continents and centuries. She draws upon historical, cultural, and Buddhist records and her own Buddhist practice to bring to life these narratives of ancestral Buddhist women. Women of the Way offers timeless wisdom and little-known stories that invigorate our understanding of women's contribution to Buddhism."
