A supplementary volume in the series. Illustrates 273 wonderful examples of Ming and (the vast majority) Qing dynasty ceramics decorated with various coloured enamels and the type of colouring known as susancai. It seems that this volume has been produced to include ceramics that don't fall easily in to any of the categories of the other ceramic volumes in the series. This is not said to denigrate the quality of the ceramics which are excellent, if not superb. Many of the pieces were in the Qing Court collection. Nearly all the examples are illustrated in multiple views and basemarks are shown. Captions in English, otherwise Chinese text.
