Hu, Philip K. ed: VISIBLE TRACES. Rare Book and Special Collections from the National Library of China. New York, 2000. xiii, 337 pp. c.180 colour plates. Sources, references and related readings. Bibliography. 28x28 cm. Paper.
An inspired and inspiring, not to say unique, exhibition of rare Chinese bibliographic materials was hosted by the Queens Borough Public Library in New York, resulting in this catalogue, which is now the best-illustrated and most extensive, well-referenced single source of information on the subject in a western language (although in Queens Borough's multicultural spirit, this catalogue is also fully bilingual with Chinese). Highly recommended.
