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.
