Published by Ernest Benn Ltd, London, 1929.
Very good condition. In original blue cloth binding. A large volume (larger than some of the other Benn volumes on Chinese art of this period). Cover is very good overall with some signs of shelfware and a few scuff marks to spine and rear. Minor bumping to extremities.
Text is near fine. Endpapers are a little discolored/foxed. Text is clean and bright throughout. The beautiful full page plates have printed tissue guards.
A very scarce volume indeed of very high quality.
xiv + 76pp + 108 full page plates.
