Lin Youlin: SUYUAN SHIPU. (An Album of Stones from Su Garden). Beijing, 2015. 4 fascicles, each c. 50 leaves. Numerous b/w woodcut illustrations and foldouts. 4 vols. 33x22 cm. Stitched, cloth case.
A fine and faithful facsimile of a Ming dynasty copy of this rare and famous work originally held in the Dongbi Shuwu collection. The edition here offered is in fact a facsimile of a facsimile published in 1937 by the Gugong Museum Library in Beijing. Done to the original size and to a high standard. Profusely illustrated with weird and wonderful scholar's rocks, stones and pebbles. An appealing work assisting the connoisseurship of this esoteric pursuit. Chinese text. Published in an edition of just 300 copies and rapidly went out-of-print as is always the case with good reproductions of this work.
