[SCHILLING, VON CANSTADT, PAUL LUDWIG (ED.)]:
.... Btschom-ldan-adas-ma-sches-rab-kyi-pha-rol-tu-phyin-pai-sning-po. Das Herz (die Quintessenz) der zum jenseitigen Ufer des Wissens gelangten Alleherrlichst-Vollendenten. Eine tübetische Religionsschrift. Leipzig, Karl Tauchnitz, 1835.
. Oblong 8vo. Size: 11 x 23,5 cm. Lvs (8) including one blank. Stereotype printing of Tibetan woodcut plates. Original yellow printed wrappers, chipped at spine and along edges, small tear restored verso of lower cover. Small stamp on front cover. Old ownership signature and a few marginal annotations in pencil. This is a Tibetan translation of the Heart Sutra (In Sanskrit: Prajnaparamita Hrdaya) or the Essence of Wisdom Sutra. It is a very short sutra and the most common recited by Buddhist followers of the world. Schilling von Canstadt (1786-1837) was a renowned orientalist and pioneer of telegraphy. During travels in the 1830's to Mongolia and Siberia he made great collections of Tibetan, Mongolian and Chinese books and manuscripts which were placed at the Asiatic Museum in St. Petersburg. The duplicates Schilling donated to the Institut de France, of which the Tibetan material was later catalogued by J. Bacot. See J. Bacot, "La collection tibétaine Schilling von Canstadt à la bibliothèque de l'Institut" (Journal Asiatique, tome CCIV, 1924, pp. 341-48).
