The Woolf Collection of Chinese Jade, Sothebys Collection Guide, Limited Edition
Sotheby's London 2013 - The Woolf Collection of Chinese Jade, Sothebys, 2013. By Michaelson, Carol, et al. Published by Sotheby's London. Limted to 500 Copies, only 400 of which were offered for sale. Sold out deluxe hardback collection guide, lavishly illustrated. 272pp. As new copy. Still Sealed. No material spans the centuries of Chinese history or is as closely associated with Chinese identity as jade. Its incorruptible durability, subtle beauty in colour and translucency, and sensuous tactile quality once polished have long entranced China, where it has been prized over gold and silver for over 7,000 years. The Woolf Collection of Chinese Jade comprises over 130 nephrite and jadeite carvings of the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911) collected by Sir John Woolf (1913-1999). For the first time, the collection is published in its entirety, fully researched and lavishly illustrated over 265 pages. Each item is also accompanied by a brief description in Chinese. The publication also features academic contributions by leading international scholars including Carol Michaelson from the British Museum, London; Teng Shu-p'ing from the National Palace Museum, Taiwan; and Regina Krahl, an independent researcher and consultant of Chinese Art. All essays are reproduced in both English and Chinese. Dimensions: 305mmhigh x 235mmwide x 28mm. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
