Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection, Volume 1 and 2
Azymuth Editions, 1994 Book. New. Hardcover. English text; Title and captions in English and Chinese; Hardcover; limited edition of 1000 copies, 2 volumes, 688 pages, 957 color illustrations, cloth, slipcase; 27.4 x 37.2 x 8 cm; 6.451 Kg; Shelf wear in slipcase, no markings on the interior except our logo glued on front free endpaper on Volume One.; ?The first volume of this catalogue contains mainly earthenwares and stonewares from the Neolithic period to the Song dynasty (AD 960-1279), the second porcelains from the Yuan (AD1279-1368) to the Qing dynasty. Although the two volumes belong together, they are conceived as individual books, each with its own working bibliography. Volume One contains small maps of China, highlighting the most important, if not the only, regions of ceramic manufacture in different periods; these were not necessary in Volume Two, where most pieces come from kiln centre, Jingdezhen in Jiangxi province. In Volume One attributions to the places of manufacture are given as precisely as possible, distinctions being made between a definitely identified kiln, a province, and a more general area of manufacture. The reference illustrations in Volume One show objects in other materials, also from the Meiyintang collection. In Volume Two all reign marks not illustrated in colour are included in an appendix; only those distinct enough for clear reproduction are repeated under the catalogue entry itself.? excerpt from the introduction by Regina Krahl..
