About this Item

Language: Chinese and English Size: 185x260mm, 228 pages Introduction: One of the prominent features of China's agricultural heritage lies in its ideograph system expressing things in images in tandem with a literal system. The only difference between the two is that whereas the written language, an information carrier reinforced with the invention and application of paper making and printing, developed very quickly and produced a huge amount of agricultural books, the images and pictures describing farming and weaving were relatively backward and slow to develop. We should not, however, take farming and weaving pictures simply as images to complement literal works. They are of significance in many aspects and worthy of extensive research. First, we should focus on their origin and their development from a crude implement to a refined and complex one which finally reaches the peak of completeness such as Lou Chou's"Geng Zhi Tu" (Pictures of Farming and Weaving ) of the Southern Song Dynasty. Secondly, we may research the historical background of the pictures, their impact on use in farm production and their influence overseas, such as on Japan and Korea. Bookseller Inventory # 10519
