This is Volume II only of a three-volume work. From a limited edition of 1,500 copies. Not ex library. Primary text in English, with occasional ancillary text in Chinese. Printed in England and Japan, bound in Scotland. Handsome oxford blue buckram binding, the front board with a crisp design of a ceramic vase in green, blue and gilt within a gilt rule frame, and with crisp gilt-stamped lettering to the spine. 14.5 x 10.25 inches. Unbumped spine head and tail, with sharp corners. Text block firmly bound in. 381-899 numbered pages, with 127 stunning color plates, many full-page, and hundreds of monochrome plates, all on heavy-weight semi-glossy stock. We can find no markings to the book, inside or out. An immensely clean copy, and quite tight. Almost certainly unread. The pictorial dust jacket with white lettering on a dark blue background and with a color photo of a ceramic piece to the front of the DJ. A lovely DJ with just a hint of rubbing. Housed in a heavy-duty cardboard slipcase covered in oxford blue buckram. An exceptionally clean slipcase and quite sturdy. A Fine copy in a Fine DJ in a Near Fine slipcase. This second volume of a three volume series details porcelain of the Yuan and early Ming Dynasties, including Vietnamese wares, porcelain of the middle and late Ming Dynasties, porcelain with Ottoman jeweled decoration, and "Swatow" wares and "Martaban" jars.
