Gulik, Robert H. van: CHINESE PICTORIAL ART AS VIEWED BY THE CONNOISSEUR. Notes on the Means and Methods of Traditional Connoisseurship. Serie Orientale Roma XIX. Rome, 1958. xxxvii, 537 pp. 160 plates. Appendix booklet with 42 samples of Chinese & Japanese paper. 30x23 cm. Cloth.
Published in a limited edition of 950 copies of which this is No. 136. The author takes as a point of departure the views of traditional Chinese connoisseurship to arrive at the formulation of the basic requirements for a critical study of the art. This copy has the dustjacket but with sellotape repairs and some loss. Also text block cracking and starting to separate from the covers. Priced accordingly as a perfectly usable reading copy of a scarce work. The separate appendix booklet containing the samples of Chinese and Japanese papers is present.
