GBP 2,000.00
The title continues: 'Photo-lithographed from the Original Chinese Edition with Brief Translations in English by the Tien-Shih-Chai Photo-Lithographic Works'.
  Shows a selection of illustrations from the 'Hongxue Yinyuan Tuji', the well-known autobiography of the well-travelled Manchu official, Linqing, illustrated by his artist-secretaries, and woodblock-printed in Yangzhou. It was the superb woodcut illustrations that distinguished the work, making it one of the finest illustrated books of its age, with a wealth of visual material on life and work in late imperial China.
  This work is another member of a rare and particular group of books produced by the famous lithographic printing press, the Dianshizhai, in Shanghai in 1879 shortly after its founding. The Major brothers, who founded Dianshizhai, produced a series of books depicting and describing illustration from famous Chinese woodblock illustrated works. Produced for the entertainment and education of the Shanghai foreign community as an easy introduction to Chinese culture.
  Introduction to the original work reproduced in Chinese. Introduction and list of contents in English followed by 48 full page lithographic reproductions of illustrations from the original work accompanied by descriptions in English.
  Some foxing but generally in fine condition with good colour to the original green silk decorative covers. Extremely rare. The first time we have handled this work.
