Singapore: Southeast Asian Ceramic Society, 1991. This catalogue of artifacts of the Han Dynasty covers the Western Han (202BC) and the Eastern Han (AD25 to AD220. It took place in the National Museum in Singapore. The artifacts were intended to take the place of the servants and slaves who had served the dead in their lives, and were buried with the dead. All the pictures in the catalogue are pictured in color. There are many pictures in black and white illustrating the quite exhaustive history of the Han Dynasty. Much history can be learned from the tiny replicas of farmyards and buildings and the juxtaposition of animals and edifices. An endlessly fascinating book in all respects, and splendid in its presentation. . Presumed First. Cloth. Near Fine/Near Fine. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. xCat. (Inventory #: WN6625)
