Overall an immensely clean set of volumes. Very gently read. A Near Fine to Very Good Plus set. One would be hard put to find a finer set. Thanks due to Hordern House Rare Books for the following commentary: "Scarce and historically important set documenting the art and architecture of China, including hundreds of photographic plates from the author's personal archive. Osvald Sirén (1879-1966) was a pre-eminent sinologist and art historian of his generation. After completing a thesis on the European Renaissance, Sirén was drawn to oriental art through a personal interest in Theosophy. So began a life-long interest, of which Histoire des Arts Anciens de la Chine is a crowning achievement. Sirén was appointed professor at Stockholm University, although he lectured little and preferred to communicate through published works. Furthermore, like many art historians of the era, he advised private collectors and acquired artworks of significance during his travels in China. Sirén visited China several times between the wars, traveling widely and documenting remote and inaccessible sites. The present work reproduces many of the author's photographs, and as such forms a unique visual archive of Chinese art and architecture. (Sadly, some of the sites documented in this series, including remote shrines and Buddhist wall paintings, did not survive the ravages of the cultural revolution.)"

        Said Bin Sultan (1791-1856) Ruler of Oman and Zanzibar. His place in the History of Arabia and East Africa.

      London, Alexander-Ouseley, (1929).. 8vo. XVIII, 200 pp. With half-title, frontispiece portrait, 5 black-and-white plates, folding map and "Genealogical table of members of the Al Bu Said dynasty". Publisher's original green cloth, title gilt on spine & upper cover, Said bin Sultan name gilt in Arabic on upper cover.. Rare first edition: presentation copy to Chaim Weizmann from Said-Ruete, inscribed: "To Dr. Ch. Weizmann / a token of esteem and sympathy / from / the Author. / XII. 29 / He makes no friend / Who never made a foe. / Tennyson". Said-Ruete was the son of Princess Salma (1844-1924), daughter of Sayyid Sai'id ibn Sultan (1791-1856), ruler of Oman and Zanzibar. The Princess married Friedrich Ruete, a clerk in the German embassy, and lived for 52 years as a widow in Germany. Their son Rudolph produced this interesting survey of his grandfather's life and times, considered as important as Vincenzo Maurizi's "History of Seyd Said, Sultan of Muscat" (London 1819). Sayyid Said ibn Sultan became the ruler of Oman in 1806, when he was about 15. After defeating the opposition with British help he determined to reassert Oman's traditional claims in East Africa. He eventually succeeded, and in about 1840 shifted his capital to Zanzibar, where he introduced the cloves that became the foundation of the island's economy. He also controlled the Arab traders that brought back slaves and ivory from the African interior. In this monograph the author highlights the early history of Oman, the rise of Said ibn Sultan to power in Oman and Zanzibar, and his relations with foreign powers (France, England, and the United States). In his introduction to this work, Major General Sir Percy Cox states that the establishment of an Arab dominion in Zanzibar remains Sultan Said's lasting achievement. - Insignificant spotting to first few leaves; a beautiful copy. - OCLC 5705061.
