London: Oriental Ceramic Society / The British Museum, 1984. Hardcover. Fine internally but art museum ex-lib. copy with stick, plates (2) and bar code.. Brown cloth, gilt lettering on spine. 200 pp. 20 color plates, 320 BW plates. Issued in conjunction with a 1984 exhibition. "Comparatively little has been written on Chinese ivory carving, and the present catalogue fills a notable gap in the history of Chinese art... The arrangement of the exhibits and explanatory texts are devised to represent the craft in the three thousand years of its history, and to clarify the place of ivories in the artistic exchange between China and western nations. The catalogue further considers the sources and structure of the various tusks, the centres of artistic production and the tools employed, and the technical methods of dating."
