Rawson, Jessica: CHINESE JADE FROM THE NEOLITHIC TO THE QING. London, 1995. 528 pp. 350 colour and 250 b/w illustrations. 28x22 cm. Cloth.
Catalogue for the display of Joseph Hotung's collection at the British Museum. Begins with an in-depth, up-to-date history of Chinese jades and their interpretation, followed by a catalogue of the over 300 individual pieces. An excellent survey of the subject. For some inexplicable reason, a few pages have been cut out and then reattached with sellotape. Perfectly serviceable as a reading copy and priced accordingly.
