1873. This is a short monograph about Feng Shui, the principle of humanity being in balance with its surroundings. Eitel, a missionary, who took a post in China, first brought Feng Shui to the attention of the western world over a century ago. Because of his Christian doctrine, Eitel is somewhat dismissive of Chinese culture, but he grudgingly admits that there may be some grain of truth in Feng Shui. Contents: The Laws of Nature; The Numerical Proportions of Nature; The Breath of Nature; The Forms and Outlines of Nature; and The History and Literature of Feng-shui.
