This is a bilingual edition in Chinese and in English. Note, however, that the commentaries appearing opposite each color plate are in Chinese only. Printed and bound in China. Ecru cloth binding, with crisp gilt-stamped title in Chinese characters to the front board and with a lovely gilt-stamped lotus design to the spine. Large folio, 15 x 12.5 inches. Unbumped spine head and tail, with sharp corners. With 30 numbered pages of text, followed by 100 tipped-in color plates, all on heavy coated stock. Almost certainly unread. An immensely clean copy, and very tight. Handsome, pale yellow pictorial DJ showing a blue and white ceramic vase to the front and with title in Chinese characters to the spine. The DJ is unclipped. The book is in a custom-made medium-duty, gray cardboard nesting box, the box with title label affixed to the top. Also present is the original custom-made heavy-duty cardboard shipping box in double portfolio style. A Fine copy in a Fine DJ in a Near Fine nesting box in a Very Good shipping box. Very scarce in any condition. This work constitutes an illustrated survey of porcelains in the Shanghai Museum.
