QIANLONG XIYIN PU. (The Seals of the Qianlong Emperor). 乾隆璽印譜. Beijing, 2004. 46, 46, 45, 48, 47, 58 folded leaves. c.1100 reproductions in red of impressions of imperial seals of varying sizes. Six original impressions done from actual seals. 43x31 cm. Stitched. Yellow silk covers in yellow cardboard box.
GBP 2,600.00
Published in a very limited edition of 100 copies, this is a marvellous work that reproduces the impressions (all in red) of over 1100 seals used by the Qing dynasty Qianlong Emperor. Starts with the huge seals carved in both Manchu and Chinese that served as symbols of national and dynastic authority. Moves on to the seals of imperial and personal authority (Huangdi zhi Bao, Qianlong Huangdi zhi Bao), seals of palaces and halls in the Forbidden City (Wuying Dian, Yangxin Dian, Qianqing Gong etc.), seals used at other residences such as the Yuanmingyuan and Bishu Shanzhuang (Chengde). There follow numerous lesser seals used by the Emperor in his personal life and collecting - such as seals from Sanxi Tang and other studios, seals used for the imperial painting collections and connoisseurship down to numerous minor seals. The seals are taken from paintings, imperial edicts etc. held in the Forbidden City collection and the Chinese State Archives. All seals are reproduced in their original size.
  Of the approximately 1100 seals, six are actual hand-done impressions from the original seals themselves. These are located as follows: Vol. 2 Leaf 16 left side: oval seal: Jide Tang Bao; Vol. 2 Leaf 34 left side: square seal: Yuanmingyuan; Vol. 6 Leaf 7: four small seals on the left side - including a Shiqu Baoji seal.
 The whole is an extremely impressive ensemble that shows the prime symbols of imperial authority and both the personal and public life of one of the key figures of late imperial China. Accompanying texts in Chinese. Out-of-print and extremely hard to find. In mint condition as new.
Subjects: Seals Forbidden City
