Large and weighty two-volume work showing 300 examples of Yuan dynasty ceramics held in the collection of the Gugong Palace Museum in Beijing. Whilst a good number of the finest examples illustrated are from the Qing Court Collection, the majority of the pieces have entered the Museum's collection post-1949 from private collections and the result of excavations. All examples published in full page colour, many in multiple views and with bases shown. Numerous pieces illustrated actual size. Preface, abstract of essay, list of plates and captions to plates in English. Main text in Chinese. Excellent visual and research reference. The first comprehensive publication on the Gugong Museum's collection of Yuan dynasty ceramics and a major addition to the literature on the subject. Recommended.
