Sīmāvicāraṇa presents an annotated romanized edition of a letter composed in Pali by Thera Vajirañāṇa - that is, by King Mongkut (Rama IV) of Siam when he was a monk before he took the throne. Sent in 1844 to Thera Laṃkāgoḍa Dhīrānanda in Sri Lanka, the long and learned letter is effectively a monograph on practical aspects of ceremonial monastic boundaries. The letter is supplemented by a shorter letter on the same subject. The volume includes a bibliography, an index locorum, and an index of names, titles, and place names. [Vom Buchrücken]
