SUZHOU TUSHUGUAN CANG GUJI SHANBEN TIYAO: JINGBU. (Annotated Catalogue of Antiquarian Book in the Suzhou Library: Classics Section). Nanjing, 2004. 2, 1, 3, 1, 8, 1-53; 54-113; 114-179 folded leaves, Chinese style. B/w photographic reproductions (typically of cover pages or first pages) throughout. 3 vols. 29x18 cm. Stitched, brocade case.
An exemplary catalogue of Chinese antiquarian books, containing far more information than is usually found in such publications with, moreover, the photographic illustration of a key page for each item included. There are good bibliographic and physical descriptions, plus notes on contents, authors, editors and famous collectors/annotators, where appropriate. The books are carefully selected for their cultural value.
This is the first of at least four sections to be published for this library. In Chinese. Scarce.
