This important volume on Chinese jade is now much sought after and increasingly scarce as a first edition.
39 colour plates, 109 black and white photographs and 73 line engravings in the text.
A very good orange cloth hardback with red and green blind embossed decoration. Covers with light soiling, some darkening to spine and some bumping and edge wear.
Text is clean and bright throughout. All soundly bound. Just a little bit of give in the spine due to weight of text block. A nice copy of an important work on Chinese jade.
