Scarce 1st edition set.
The set comprises two very large large volumes - collectively weighing about 8.5kg prior to packing. Each volume 432mm high x 300mm wide. Dual language text - Chinese and English. Blue cloth hardback with gilt lettering.
Very good condition set - a little sun-fading to spine and discoloration to endpapers. Text is nice and clean.
These books comprise many calligraphy illustrations including many fold-out sections. A scarce and comprehensive set. No copies listed on COPAC. Only 2 first edition copies on Worldcat.
