  • A Note from Henry Rosemont, Jr.
  • Henry Rosemont Jr.

After being asked a number of times over the years by friends and colleagues about how to secure a copy of Explorations in Early Chinese Cosmology, published in 1984 by Scholars press but almost immediately difficult to obtain, I re-secured the copyright, and am reissuing the work as a publication-on-demand title through Book Surge Publishers. While I hope others will follow suit in attempting to place their hard-to-obtain works back in print, I do not recommend the particular publisher I chose, for reasons I will narrate to anyone interested, along with matters of copyright, cost, distribution, et cetera. I may be contacted at Henry_Rosemont_Jr@brown.edu. In any event, the deed is now done in my case, and the book can be purchased through amazon.com for $13.99, which is the lowest price I was able to negotiate while breaking even with my costs.
