Book Description Faber & Faber, 1963. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 057105594X Dust jacket condition: Very Good. First ed. Text free of highlighting and writing. Tightly bound. The celadon wares made in Korea under the Koryo Dynasty (918-1392) correspond roughly in date with the Chinese celadons of the Sung and Yuan Dynasties, which were discussed by Mr Gompertz in an earlier Faber Monograph, Chinese Celadon Wares. As a result of a brisk export trade, the Chinese celadons, with their robust but sensitive forms and characteristic blue-green or grey-green glazes, were known and treasured throughout the Far and Near East from the time they were made. The Korean celadons, on the other hand, were not exported, and remained forgotten till their rediscovery by chance excavation of early tombs within the last sixty years. Collectors in the Far East, and in Europe and America, have come to recognize in them aesthetic merits equal to those of the finest Chinese wares, from which they developed on quite distinct national lines. Serious archaeological and stylistic study of these wares has hitherto been mainly conducted in Korea and Japan by experts whose publications were not readily accessible to Western readers. During many years of residence in the Far East, Mr Gompertz had exceptional opportunities to familiarize himself with the writings and opinions of Oriental experts and fellow-collectors. In the present book he relates aesthetic appreciation of the Koryo wares to a background of historical and factual knowledge that has hitherto been out of reach in this country. 115 pages.

Very Good+ in Very Good DJ: Both book and DJ show indications of careful use. The Book shows just a touch of shelving wear to the lower extremities; small dampstain at the lower corner of the front pastedown endpaper; faint foxing at the top edge; the binding shows the slightest lean, but remains perfectly secure; the text is clean. Free of any ownership names, dates, addresses, notations, inscriptions, stamps, plates, or labels. A handsome copy, structurally sound and tighly bound, showing only a couple of minor flaws. Close to 'As New'. The DJ shows only a touch of wear to the extremities: mild rubbing to the panels; faint soiling; the price is unclipped, but the lower corner is clipped anyway, perhaps to remove a pre-publication price. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 4to.(10 x 6.3 x 0.85 inches). 102 pages of text with an Extensive 96 page section of duotone photographic plates on slick paper. Language: English.
