By way of advantage of its targeted approach to presentation, this pretty and distinguished
book, commemorating the one hundred and twenty fifth anniversary of the founding of the hot York Academy
of Sciences, is either a source-book and a succinct interpretation of the tradition of Bali.
It offers over seven-hundred candid pictures chosen from 25,000 Leica negatives, in a
highly prepared and built-in representation of convinced significant gains of Balinese life.
These are followed by means of explanatory reviews, sometimes through excerpts from notes
