Description - Japanese Tea Ceremony by A. I. Sadler

"The Japanese Tea Ceremony" is abundantly illustrated with drawings of furniture and utensils used in the Japanese tea ceremony, tearoom architecture and garden design, floor and ground plans, and numerous other features of this still-vital tradition, including a number of photos of famous tea bowls, teahouses, and gardens. First published in 1933, this classic remains the gold standard of books on the five-centuries-old tea ceremony, which is itself 'an epitome of Japanese civilization'. The tea ceremony-known as cha-no-yu, or literally 'Hot Water for Tea' - has touched nearly every aspect of Japanese life. Its disciplined esthetic as expressed in art, architecture, garden design, and exquisite craftwork is the focus of the first part of this book; the second part, 'Tea Masters', relates the experiences of masters of the art over the centuries; and, the third part details the histories of the various schools and traditions of the art of tea.
