Chinese Ceramics from Datable Tombs and Some Other Dated Material: A Handbook
Sotheby Parke Bernet Publications by Philip Wilson Publishers Limited, London. 1978, 1st Edition. (ISBN: 0856670391). Hardcover, with dust jacket. Book, English text; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 189 pages with various black and white illustrations; 21.3 x 28 cm; 1.402 Kg; Used book with signs of wear, namely on the dust jacket that show edgeworn. The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover. The interior is in good condition, except for a sticker glued on the rear of the front cover, signs of a removed stick on the top right corner of the front free endpaper and one page that has a small tear towards the outside text block.; The study of Chinese ceramics has, until now, been severely hampered by lack of archaeological evidence, particularly with regard to dating. There are good representative collections in Western museums, but very few items can be given a precise, or even an approximate, date on firm evidence. Since the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, random looting of tombs, the source of most early ceramics in Western collections, had been stopped, and the Chinese authorities have carried out many important controlled excavations. A small proportion of the early objects was revealed in “The Genious of China”, an exhibition shown in London and Paris in 1973-74, and carefully prepared articles on the archaeological and art-historical work have been published in Chinese periodicals. However, much of the important evidence still awaits publication. The author of this book had exceptional opportunities to visit provincial museums and art-historical research institutes in China in the years 1972 to 1975. He took notes and photographs of exhibits to which a precise, or reasonably close, date can be given on good evidence. This important material is published here for the first time in the West. The book is arranged in chronological order with the author’s comments beneats each object. Additional material includes a map of China showing major tomb sites and a chronological index. This scholarly work presents an exciting and vital contribution towards establishing the chronology of Chinese ceramics. Good/Fair.

Joined Colours: Decoration and Meaning in Chinese Porcelain. Ceramics from Collectors in the Min Chiu Society, Hong Kong
Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.in association with Tai Yip Company, Hong Kong. 1993. (ISBN: 9623210248). Soft cover, with dust jacket. Book, English text; Paperback; 21.8 x 28.2 cm; 0.720 Kg; 158 pages with 165 colour plates and 7 black-and-white illustrations.; Used with minor signs of wear; Catalogue from the exhibition at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, January 31-November 28, 1993.; The Gemlike beauty of multicoloured enamel decoration on white porcelain - sometimes akin to painting, sometimes echoing the rich texture of silk brocades, lacquers, and cloisonne - is the focus of this volume of seventy-nine Chinese porcelains of the Ming and Qing dynasties drawn from renowned collections of members of the Min Chiu Society, Hong Kong. Although polychrome porcelain is most often examined from the perspectives of authenticity, dating, and stylistic development, this study addresses the crucial issue of meaning. Through an exploration of the emblematic significance of individual colours and of colour combinations (including the famed doucai color scheme from which this book takes its name) and the auspicious meaning of imagery, the authors have placed these impressive ceramics within a framework of Chinese cultural values. The catalogue is lavishly illustrated in colour, with detailed descriptions of the objects focusing on decoration and the use of under - and overglazed enamels. Reign marks are illustrated for each piece. This book will be of great interest to collectors and students of porcelain, scholars, and all those who love ceramics and Chinese art. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

No markings on the interior. Both protected with a clearcover.; "It is unusual to find an extensive cache of standard trade porcelain preserved from the 17 century, and the contents of this shipwreck should be of particular interest to scholars and collectors of Chinese porcelain for a number of reasons. The range of shapes of wares available include a number which are extremely rare in a European context; flanged kendis, spouted wall-vases, finely pencilled Transitional boxes and bowls, peach-shaped wineewers, night lights modelled as crouching cats. The range illustrates graphically what a south Asian porcelain trading vessel in the mid 17th Century might be expected to contain and re-inforces the view that the Chinese blue and white porcelain, cherished in the West in the first half of the 17th century, represented Chinese wares only of completely typical trade quality." excerpt from the introduction by C.D.

Sotheby's Amsterdam. 2007. Soft cover. Book, English text; Paperback; auction catalogue from Sotheby's Amsterdam sale on the 29, 30 & 31 January 2007; 276 pages; 1208 lots with colour illustrations; 21.9 x 27.2 cm; 1.26 Kg; Used book with signs of wear on the front cover, spine and back cover. Small tear on the bottom of the spine.No markings on the interior. Good working copy.; Articles by Dr. Nguyen Dinh Chien, Paul A. Van Dyke and Prof. Dr. Christiaan J.A. Jorg; The 1208 lots in this sale have been immersed in the South China Sea for nearly 280 years and then recovered from the shipwreck in 1998. "The CA MAU SHIPWRECK was salvaged in 1998/9 by the Vietnam Salvage Company (Visal) off the coast of Ca Mau Province in southern Vietnam after two fisherman found Chinese porcelain objects in the vicinity. An extensive maritime archaeological expedition yielded much unique information. It was clear that the vessel, measuring about 23 by 8 meters, was heading south-east when it caught fire and sank. Unfortunately, most of the timber had rotted, and the remaining fragments were insufficient for the origin of the ship to be established with any certainty. In all, about 130.000 pieces of porcelain were retrieved from the site, indicating that porcelain was the main cargo. Some pieces bear the four or six-character mark of the Qing emperor Yongzheng, regnant between 1723 and 1735 (lots 109-111). This establishes an ante quem date for these objects: they cannot have been made before 1723 when Yongzheng succeed his father, Emperor Kangxi, who reigned from 1662 to 1722. (.) To conclude, the Ca Mau cargo offers a wide variety of beautiful pieces for different markets, it poses some interesting questions and adds greatly to our knowledge of the inter-Asian porcelain trade in the Yongzheng period." excerpt from the article by Prof. dr. Christian J.A. Jorg. Fair.

Encounters: The Meeting of Asia and Europe, 1500-1800
V&A Publications. 2004, 1st Edition. (ISBN: 1851774319). Soft cover. Book, English text; Paperback; 25 x 28.9 cm, 2.147 Kg; 396 pages with colour illustrations; Used book with signs of wear on cover, spine and back cover. Some scuffs on the spine. The hinge is loose but not shaken. The interior is in good condition, with our logo glued on front free endpaper; This book accompanies a major V&A exhibition that explores three hundred years of mutual fascination between East and West, a period of discoveries, encounters and exchanges initiated by the Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama's discovery of a sea route to India in 1948. This established, for the first time, direct relations between Europe and maritime Asia and ushered in a dynamic period of commercial, artistic and technological exchange. This compelling story is presented through wide-ranging essays by leading international scholars, including specialists from the V&A. The text is complemented by a sumptuous range of images, many of these remarkable and luxurious pieces being published for the first time. Discoveries, the book's opening section, examines the western fascination for the materials and technologies of Asia, which existed even before direct contact was established, and charts the route that early Europeans took to the Indies and the new, sophisticated worlds they found there. Encounters, the second section, looks at the human dimension of the story, the meeting of peoples from East and West in different spheres, from highly formalised court audiences to intimate relationships. The exotic visitors from the West aroused much curiosity in Asia as demonstrated in the many Asian depictions of foreigners and their ships. This section also explores how these pale-skinned, strangely dressed peoples were perceived in the East and how images of them were appropriated into existing Asian iconographies. The final section, Exchanges, explores cross-influences in taste, technology and trade. In Europe there was an immediate demand for luxuries such as porcelain, lacquer and textiles made in Asia but suited to western living. In Asia, it was European technology that was most sought after. Clocks, guns, maps and lenses were all imported and simulated by different Asian cultures. In its close examination of the relationships - diplomatic, religious and personal - between East and West, this book provides both an important scholarly record of this vibrant period in world history and a beautiful document of the works of art and industry that it produced.

May show signs of shelf wear.; The Global Lives of Things considers the ways in which 'things', ranging from commodities to works of art and precious materials, participated in the shaping of global connections in the period 1400-1800. By focusing on the material exchange between Asia, Europe, the Americas and Australia, this volume traces the movements of objects through human networks of commerce, colonialism and consumption. It argues that material objects mediated between the forces of global economic exchange and the constantly changing identities of individuals, as they were drawn into global circuits. It proposes a reconceptualization of early modern global history in the light of its material culture by asking the question: what can we learn about the early modern world by studying its objects? This exciting new collection draws together the latest scholarship in the study of material culture and offers students a critique and explanation of the notion of commodity and a reinterpretation of the meaning of exchange. It engages with the concepts of 'proto-globalization', 'the first global age' and 'commodities/consumption'. Divided into three parts, the volume considers in Part One, Objects of Global Knowledge, in Part Two, Objects of Global Connections, and finally, in Part Three, Objects of Global Consumption. The collection concludes with afterwords from three of the leading historians in the field, Maxine Berg, Suraiya Faroqhi and Paula Findlen, who offer their critical view of the methodologies and themes considered in the book and place its arguments within the wider field of scholarship. Extensively illustrated, and with chapters examining case studies from Northern Europe to China and Australia, this book will be essential reading for students of global history. New/No Jacket.

Tankards and Mugs: Drinking from Chinese Export Porcelain
Jorge Welsh Research & Publishing, London. 2016, 1st Edition. (ISBN: 9780955743276). Hardcover. Book, English text; Hardcover; 352 pages with 431 colour illustrations; 23.5 x 29.7 cm; 2,440 kg; LIMITED EDITION OF 500 COPIES.; The first comprehensive study on Chinese Porcelain Tankards and Mugs, with pieces from 23 museums, 18 private collectors and 3 dealers, from around the world.; Tankards and mugs are vessels that illuminate many aspects of social, economic and art history. This book focuses on Chinese export porcelain tankards and mugs dating from the 15th to the 19th century. Drinking is a pleasurable and social activity, enjoyed by most cultures of the world. In China, alcohol was used for feasts, festivals and religious ritual as early as the Neolithic age. In the West, beer, cider and porter were drunk on both convivial and solemn occasions. Vessels used to contain drink were often treasured containers, and time and care was spent on their manufacture and decoration. They needed to be practical, functional utensils, but also beautiful. When Chinese porcelain reached Europe an ideal match was made. Top quality wares were highly regarded luxury items, and they included tankards and mugs. This book is illustrated with 197 Chinese porcelain tankards and mugs, each catalogued and referenced in detail. They range from blue and white to delicately enamelled vessels, some emblazoned with western designs and coats of arms. The introductory essays discuss the history of a vessel that played an important role in society, stimulating design and decoration while also being symbolic of kinship and harmony. New/No Jacket.

Where Antique Korean Textiles Meet Contemporary Art
Linda Wriggleworth Ltd. London. 1997. Soft cover. Book, English text; 18.5 x 18.8 cm; 0.495 Kg; 59 loose leaf cards with: text by Linda Wrigglesworth; and 46 colour plates, each with caption and text; Asian textile dealer catalogue; Used with signs of wear. The outside edges are slightly bent. The cards are good condition.; “I have been struck by the rarity of these textiles, sourcing most of my pieces in Korea (.). Korea, like Japan, was a very closed society and pieces were never brought out of Korea by Western travellers in the same quantities as they were from China. Korean textiles also had a great sentimental value, being treasured by the families who owned them. I (.) am delighted to have found as my other source, Myrna Myers of Paris who with her husband Sam have collected Korean textiles for many years. Their collection is proudly part of this exhibition. Korean costume and textiles are a subject worthy of recognition in the world’s collection today. Rank badges are almost impossible to find, costumes even more so. Our collection of badges is indeed one of the largest on the open market.” excerpt from the text accompanying the catalogue by Linda Wrigglesworth. Good.

Iznik: The Pottery of Ottoman Turkey
Alexandria Press London in association with Thames and Hudson. 1994, 2nd Edition. (ISBN: 0500973741). Hardcover, with dust jacket. Book, English text; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 27 x 37.5 cm; 3.25 kg; 384 pages with 991 illustrations, 303 in colour.; Used book with minor signs of wear, however the hinge is slightly loose, but the binding remains firm.; The ceramics of Iznik were among the finest works of art produced in the Ottoman Empire. The technical quality of this pottery and the beauty and immediacy of its designs have long made it one of the most popular art forms from the Islamic world. The Iznik ceramic industry was established and patronized by the Court of the Sultans, and its successive stylistic phases reflect the major changes in Ottoman taste from the late 15th to the 17th century. Starting with the elaborate blue-and-white arabesque style of the late 15th century and gradually developing into the bold and vibrant naturalism of the second half of the 16th century, the decorative repertoire of the potters included a phase when Iznik pottery was influenced by Chinese Yuan and Ming blue-and-white porcelain, of which the Ottoman Sultans have bequethed us an oustanding collection. When it was first published in 1989, this book established itself as the definitive account of the subject. Based on many years of research, this study is the only comprehensive survey devoted to Iznik pottery vessels. It establishes a firm typology and chronology for these wares, fully documenting every distinct group. The wealth of illustrations and reference material has been assembled from all the major public and private collections throughout the world. Fair/Dust Jacket Included.

The Baur Collection, Geneva, Chinese Ceramics Volume Three: Monochrome-Glazed Porcelains of the Ch'Ing Dynasty
Collections Baur-Genève, Switzerland. 1972, 1st Edition. Hardcover, with dust jacket. Book, English and French text; Hardcover (cloth with dust jacket); 24 x 29.3 cm; 2.252 Kg; Introduction of 22 pages followed by an extensive catalogue with black and white and colour illustrations, each with caption.; Limited edition of 1000 copies of which this is number 188.; Signs of wear in the dust jacket, with some yellowing on spine and some peeling of the laminated layer of the dust jacket on the top and bottom of the spine and also on the top of the front and back cover. The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover. The outside text block shows some yellowing. The interior is in very good condition, apart from an old bookseller sticker glued to the front free endpaper and a tiny mark on the bottom right of one page (bent in the past).; When the Baur Collection museum opened in 1964, few people were aware that this private museum housed one of the most important collections of Chinese ceramics in Europe."In these last two volumes of the catalogue therefore our scope will be found limited almost entirely to wares produced during the reigns of K'ang Hsi (1662-1722), Yung Chêng (1723-1735), and Ch'in Lung (1736-1795). But few periods have been more prolific in invention: and to all lovers of Chinese porcelain these are familiar and evocative names calling to mind a succession of styles of unusual brilliance.(.) The present volume is devoted exclusively to the porcelains with monochrome glazes. (.) Their representation in the Baur Collection is one of quite exceptional richness and strengh. Shown here (with relatively few lacunae) is the full gamut of tones and colours that the 18th century potters of the Ching-tê-chên were able to devise, while some of the rarest and most prized effects are present in generous measure. Outstanding among the latter are the "peachbloom" pinks, pale "clair-de-lune" blues and muchfavoured soft celadon greens, the development of which seems to belong especially to the period about 1715-1745. This part of the collection may therefore be said to offer much of unusual value both to the student, and to the casual visitor." excerpt from the introduction by John Ayers, Keeper at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 1972.

Two volumes In slipcase.); 27.5 x 37 cm; 5,481 Kg; 364 (volume I) and 240 pages (volume II) with 400 colour illustrations including 59 panoramic views.; Used books. The spines and the exterior of the slipcase are faded and show signs of wear. The spines have wear marks. The interior is in very good condition with minor signs of wear.; Catalogue from the exhibition at the Hong Kong Museum of Art of 163 objects, the majority are products of the imperial kilns of Jingdezhen.; "The Hong Kong Museum of Art is proud to present an exhibition of pieces selected from the Tianminlou Collection of Chinese porcelain, a collection that has been assembled over the last four decades with meticulous care and discriminating taste. The exhibition features sixty-five pieces of blue and white, fifty-four pieces of polychrome and forty-four pieces of monochrome, totalling one hundred and sixty-tree objects dating from the 13th to the 18th century, they are the very best of Mr. Ko Shih Chao's acquisitions made in the last twenty years. A large majority of the pieces are products of the imperial kilns of Jingdezhen. They present a spectrum of techniques and styles, and tell the story to the constant striving by potters of Jingdezhen to refine the porcelain body, to master the intricacies of firing, and to invent new glazes from metals, a forth element provided by nature. It is an extraordinary chapter - and the climatic chapter - from the seven-thousand year saga of ceramics. Through the generosity of Mr. Ko Shih Chao the Tianminlou Collection has been put in public view. In addition to lending his collection for exhibition, Mr. Ko has also sponsored the publication of the catalogue that accompanies the exhibition. To the catalogue itself he has contributed many entries as well as one of the essays. The value of the catalogue has been enhanced by the essays contributed by Mr. John Ayers, Mr Julian Thompson and Mr Laurence Tam. It was Mr. Ko Shih Chao idea to include in the catalogue panoramic illustrations of a number of pieces so that the swept and subtlety of their designs can be fully appreciated. The catalogue is itself a visual delight thanks to the superb technique of the photographers: Mr Ogawa Tadahiro who did the panoramic photographs, Mr Wakisaka Susumu who took most of the colour transparencies for Volume I of the catalogue. " excerpt from the Preface by Christina Chu, Curator of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, July 1987. Good/No Jacket.
