As said by many, this is by far the most important and comprehensive collection and description of South and Southeast Asian sculptures in existence.  This is a reference tool that I would not be without.  But, since I have two copies, this one could be yours.

There is a succinct glossary and bibliography.  Major geographic topics include:  the Indian Subcontinent, Nepal / Tibet, Indonesia, Thailand, and Cambodia / Indochina. 

There are tons of B&W and color plates throughout the 264 page softcover book.  1978.

This is a must for a collector of such art.
