About this Item

Presumed published in China. Illustrated paper covered boards. Unpaginated. Thick card paper. With 12 colored paper cuts mounted under clear plastic. Text in Chinese and English. A work perhaps issued for tourists, providing brief anecdotal legends recalling the history of the Eastern Zhou Dynasty in China during the 'Warring States' period. This book also promotes the art of paper cuts as practiced by the Yu country region, with a description on the rear inside cover explaining the art and the skill of the Yu artisans. The English translations of the text are a bit rough. The Zhou Dynasty in China was the longest lasting dynasty in Chinese history, that saw the first use of iron and the evolution of written script into its modern form. The Eastern Zhou Dynasty is associated with a decline in royal rule (Wikipedia). VERY GOOD condition. Some scuffs and scratches to the front cover and lower spine. Minor general fading. Light edgewear. Interior clean and solid. Bookseller Inventory # 006495
