 MA CHAUNDE, Currencies in Old Shanghai. Lao Shang Hai Huo Bi
MA CHAUNDE
Currencies in Old Shanghai. Lao Shang Hai Huo Bi
Shanghai People's Fine Arts, 1998. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. 9787532217748 Clean, bright, unmarked pages, some surface markings and edgewear to jacket, short closed tear to top rear edge. One of the better China-produced books on Republican-era Chinese banknotes (with just a few pages on coins). Even though it focuses solely on those notes used in Shanghai, a number of the National and other Provincial banks issued notes with Shanghai overprints, so the selection discussed is in fact much wider than Shanghai bank notes only. Very good descriptions of the various notes and banks in both Chinese and surprisingly good English, along with large and well-printed color images of the notes themselves -- many of which do not appear in other sources. Overall an excellent book, similar in quality (if not completeness) to Hsu Yih-tzong's classic (and very expensive) series produced in Taiwan, with the added benefit of providing English translations throughout. (Reader review) 189 pages. Text is in English and Chinese. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1250 grams. Category: Antiques & Collectibles; English and Chinese Language; ISBN/EAN: 9787532217748. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request. Inventory No: dscf5741.

JOSEPH CUNNINGHAM
The Artistic Furniture of Charles Rohlfs
Yale University Press, 2008. First Edition, Softcover. Very Good Condition. 9780300145465 Firmly bound, clean unmarked pages, slight curling to cover corners. This book presents the first major study of this important American designer and craftsman, drawing upon new photographs and fresh sources of information. Alongside traditional historical approaches, the book presents detailed formal, structural, and stylistic analyses of Rohlfs’s well-known masterpieces from major museums, together with lesser-known objects in public and private collections. Topics include discovering the contribution of Rohlfs’s wife?mystery novelist Anna Katharine Green?to his designs; the far-ranging sources of his idiosyncratic motifs; his influence on Gustav Stickley’s designs; his commissioned interiors; his efforts at self-promotion and marketing; and his attempts to define a conceptual framework for his artistic endeavor. Handsomely designed and illustrated, the book also features a complete set of unpublished period illustrations of over seventy works. 282 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
