Description:

Quarto. IX, [1], 310pp. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over purple cloth, with gold lettering on spine. Decorative endpapers. Color frontispiece. For 13 centuries, throughout China male recruits studied diligently for a long series of grueling examinations in hopes of achieving the civil rank that would enable them to serve the emperor of China. For the fortunate few who passed these exams there were nine possible ranks, each identified by a square badge of finely woven kesi, embroidery, or brocade. "Ladder to the Clouds" offers a thorough analysis of symbols, styles, and techniques used in mandarin square ranks, along with the most complete information for their identification to date. An exploration of Chinese symbols and customs, many of which are still practiced today. Includes numerous b/w and color photographic reproductions, detailed descriptions and illustrations. Dust-jacket, binding and interior in overall very good condition. Bookseller Inventory #
