San Francisco: Buddhist Churches of America, 1998. Hardcover. 404p., illustrated with numerous b&w vignette photoportraits of nearly four hundred ministers and a couple dozen snapshots of temple buildings, a plethora of statistics, hardbound in 11x8.5 inch purple boards gilt-titled and -decorated. The opening text is peppered with multicolor post-it slips in the margins, some with a holograph note, and a few of these are further pointed up in lightly pencilled underlines (post-its of course removable, we have left these alone). A very good clean sound copy.
