Chinese Art: Collection of Calligraphy 原刻草字彙法帖(草書)6 Volume Set, c. 1786. China
China: 1796. Condition: Acceptable. Collection of Calligraphy 原刻草字彙法帖(草書)6 Volume Set. We believe the original publication of this work was in 1786, but we do not know which date this set would have been printed. From the general appearance it would certainly seem to be an early printing. 6 Volumes bound in traditional style. Thread has been re-sewn. Good overall, but very age worn and discoloured. Only one volume retains its label. Small faded red ink stamp to each with volume number. Approximate dimensions of each volume: 202mm high x 135mm wide x 7mm deep. Provenance: Collection of Eddie Tseng Po (1915-1989). He was a top newsman, at the centre of many world events. He held position such as the Far East Bureau chief of CNA, editor of the Hong Kong Times, President of the Hong Kong Correspondents Club, and undertook diplomatic roles on behalf of the Republic of China government in Taiwan. He was given a near state funeral in Hong Kong and a second one, with military honours, in Taiwan.
