Catalogue of The Late Yuan and Ming Ceramics in The British Museum
by Harrison-Hall, Jessica
London: The British Museum Press, 2001. VG/VG, I would call the condition near fine except it is exlibrary from an art school, appears unread. Barcode and red ink stamps at rear of volume, minor markings on verso of title-page, label at base of a dustjacket spine. Lightly stamped in ink on all three text block edges. Overall this book has very attractive shelf-appeal and is apparently unused. Black cloth with color pictorial glossy dustjacket. 640 pp., 135 bw and 1025 color plates. The British Museum holds the world's broadest collection of Ming ceramics, now published for the first time in its entirety. Nearly a thousand items are here illustrated, identified, dated and discussed, incorporating the most up-to-date archaeological discoveries and new scientific research previously available only in Chinese or specialist journals. Five introductory essays provide an accessible framework. Each of the catalogue's twenty chapters is then introduced with a brief summary of its defining characteristics. A wealth of additional information, much of it never before gathered together, is clearly interpreted and presented in a series of appendices, tables and maps for ease of reference and research by collectors, students and scholars.
