About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Later Ceramic Wares of China by Hobson, R. L..

Description:

Full title: The Later Ceramic Wares of China, being the blue and white, famille verte, famille rose, monochromes, etc., of the K'ang Hsi, Yung Cheng, Ch'ien Lung and other periods of the Ch'ing Dynasty. Presumed first printing of the first edition, 1925. Author's preface dated November 1924. Printed and bound in Great Britain. NOT ex-library. In the original heavy-duty binding. Medium gray buckram binding, with crisp gilt-stamped round floral design to the front board and with crisp gilt-stamped lettering to the spine, consistent with photos of the original binding. Exceptionally clean and well-preserved binding. Just a tad of bumping to the spine head and tail, and slight rubbing to the fairly sharp corners. Text block firmly bound in. Moderate spotting to the top edge and to the fore edge, almost not at all into the pages themselves.11.25 x 9 inches. xxix and 155 numbered pages of text, plus unnumbered pages of plates. With 76 plates, the first 24 of which are in color, the remainder in B&W. Heavy coated stock for the plates. A number of the plates are fold-out. All plates are preceded by tissue guards, the guards with lettering describing the various plates. Almost all the guards are pristine. No writing, staining, internal foxing or tears observed, except one page with a tiny 1/2 inch tear at the fore-edge, trivial. There is a red, so-called "chop" mark to the title page from a previous owner, to a handsome effect, with #2/2 under it in a neat blue ink hand. Also on the rear pastedown in the lower corner appears a very small and discreet paste-on stamp from a San Francisco bookseller. Else a very clean copy, and rather tight. Gently read. A Very Good copy. Somewhat scarce. A heavy book. Chapter XV is a valuable resource on marks and includes B&W illustrations of various marks, including reign names, Ming emperors, hall-marks, potters' names, and marks of commendation. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
