Masterpieces of Chinese Enamel Ware in the National Palace Museum, 1971
Masterpieces of Chinese Enamel Ware in the National Palace Museum.
Published by the National Palace Museum, Taipei, Taiwan, Republic of China. 1971 first edition.
A fine orange cloth hardback in its original protective plastic cover as issued. With printed card slipcase in very good condition - some scuffing and wear, but all intact and sound. Text is bright and clean and soundly bound. A very nice copy.
These volumes published by the museum proved popular and were reprinted a number of times. We think the content remains unchanged.
The last free end paper carries a Japanese printer's label which indicated the year of printing - in this case, 1971.
The preface is dated to May 31, 1971. For this series, booksellers often quote the date in the preface as being the printing date - the printing date is always printed on a Japanese printer's label near the back. If this is missing, then it is not a true first edition.
Text in Chinese and English.
Prelims + 159pp + Printer's label page.
Weight approximately 1264g (unpacked).
Approximately 288mm high x 223mm wide x 29mm deep (in slipcase).
