Clean tight ex-library copy with usual envelope and markings. Light green boards with gilt lettering and design have tape residue from library cover. Jacket in mylar has nicks and small tears along edges and a mark on spine where tape was removed. The results of the laboratory research on which the individual Techinical Observations were based, are combined and summarized in the form of separate essays on various phases in the study of ancient Chinese bronzes. Among these are the problems of chemical composition, fabrication, metal structure and corrosion products. Special emphasis is placed on X-ray examination which reveals much new information on structure, assembly, and ancient and modern repairs. 227 pp with 315 photos (13 in color). International and priority postage extra due to size and weight of book. Bookseller Inventory #
