Synopsis: Sinologist and art collector Elliott (1912-96) spent her final decade working on this study of China's imperial art collection, but died before it was completed. Her nephew David Shambaugh (China policy and international affairs, George Washington U.) completed the study and prepared it for publication. The odyssey is not so much geographical as cultural: the changing meaning and role of the art from the earliest times to the present. Annotation 2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

From the Inside Flap:

Traces the three-thousand-year history of the emperor's imperial collection, from the Bronze Age to the present. Enlivened by the personalities of those who cared for the collection, this textured account of the imperial treasures highlights magnificent artworks and their arduous transit through politics, war, and diplomatic reconciliations.
