Ancient Khotan 1

Abstract

DR. M. A. STEIN'S promised scientific publication of the material gattered by him during the course of his first expedition to Chinese Turkestan has now appeared, and has been awarded the distinction of being published by the Clarendon Press, and the scientific publication of the material gathered by him during the course of his first expendition to Chinese Turkestan has been appeared, the distinction of being published by the Clarendon Press, and so under the auspices of the University of Oxford; and for the importance of Dr. Stein's arcælogical discoveries is great. The significance of his finds will be found fully explained in two articles which appeared in NATURE on the occasions of the publication of Dr. Stein's first “Preliminary Report”(1901) and of his popular book, “Sand-buried Ruins of Khotan”(1903), which gave so good a general account of his work. It is therefore unnecessary to go over the same ground again now, and we can confine ourselves to a consideration of the fine volumes before us.
