Catalogue of an extensive exhibition at the Nanjing Museum in China comparing and contrasting the art of ancient China and ancient Egypt at the time the Han dynasty ruled in China some 2000 years ago. Most interesting for the comparison of the achievements of two prime world civilizations of the time. The fine Egyptian artefacts were loaned from the Royal Ontario Museum. The equally fine Han dynasty exhibits from the collection of the Nanjing Museum. Illustrated throughout with many fascinating objects. In Chinese. Hard to obtain.
