First edition, published November 1936. Printed and bound in Great Britain. Red silk binding with fairly crisp gilt-stamped lettering to the front board and to the spine. Lightly soiled binding, and with moderate rubbing and scraping along the spine. 11.5 x 9 inches. Moderately bumped and abraded spine head and tail and corners. Hinges very slightly tender but the text block still firmly bound in. Fore- and bottom edges deckled to a handsome effect. With color frontispiece (detached but fully intact) and tissue guard, and xxviii and 160 numbered pages of text, and with 160 monochrome plates on semi-glossy stock and with notes opposite each plate. No remainder marks. Apart from the issues noted with the binding, this is a very clean copy. A Good Plus copy. Much of the material in the exhibition was on loan from the Chinese Nationalist government; additional material came from significant European collections.
