About this Item

Folio (12 1/2 x 9"). [12] tissue-guarded leaves (Plates). Original string bound illustrated wrappers, with black lettering to front cover. Although the first half of the 20th century in Korean history is marked by the grave and painful experience of the Japanese occupation between 1910 and 1945, this period also saw the Japanese carrying out the first modern archaeological excavations of ancient Korean sites (royal tombs, temples, ceramic kilns) and preservation of their artifacts. Inaugurated in 1915, the Government General Museum was intended to gather and exhibit some of the best material found during these activities. Published between 1929 and 1943, the Museum bulletin featured some of the best pieces exhibited within its wall. This fifth volume published in 1933 reproduces in photogravure the following artifacts: - A laquered basket (Han Dynasty), found in tomb No. 116, in the village of Nanseiri, South Heian Province. - A wooden horse (Han Dynasty), found in the same tomb listed above. - A gold crown, found in the gold phoenix tomb in Keishu, North Keisho Province. - Gold belt ornaments and pendants, found in the gold phoenix tomb in Keishu, North Keisho Province. - Horse-Man shaped vase, found at the Gold-Bell tomb in Keishu, North Keisho Province. - A Buddhist jewel-shaped halo and gilt bronze with dated inscription (Period of the Three Kingdoms). - A roof tile (Silla Dynasty), found near Keishu, North Keisho Province. - A stone lantern (Silla Dynasty) removed from a ruined temple in South Jenra Province. - A Buddhist angle painted on a bronze plate (Korai Dynasty). - A glazed jar (Late Li Dynasty). - Various belt ornaments made of tortoise shell (Late Li Dynasty). - Three stucco heads found in Hadda, Afghanistan (Gift from Dr. J. Hacken, Director of the Musée Guimet, Paris). Each photogravure plate is facing its captioned tissue-guard made of rice paper.Minor shelf wear. Fore-edge of front free endpaper partly torn.
