ZHONGGUO JIANZHU CANKAO TUJI. (Pictorial Reference Guide to Chinese Architecture). ä¸åå»ºçåèåé. Beijing, n.d. (1953/4.) Over 1000 b/w photographic illustrations, architectural drawings and plans on 256 double-sided loose sheets in cloth-case. 27x18 cm. Loose in cloth case.
A copious visual compilation of over 1000 black-and-white photographs, diagrams and plans of temples, palaces and pagodas all over China, being the plates for a planned nine volume series on Chinese architecture intended for publication in the mid-1950s. This work was published by the Zhongguo Yingzao Xueshe, the leading body in China from the 1930s through the 1950s who sought to preserve and research China's architectural heritage. The pre-eminent Chinese architectural historian, Liang Sicheng, was apparently much involved. This large compilation, primarily black-and-white photographic illustration, is an important record of the state of Chinese architecture and monuments in the 1950s. Text in Chinese. All the loose sheets are present as issued, although the pagination is erratic in one part. See note below. A good copy.
NOTE RE COLLATION OF THIS WORK
Plates are numbered 1-522 which would equal 261 sheets. However, all copies handled by us have had 256 sheets.
NB: Plate 2 has a separate part II on an adjacent sheet.
No plate 266 (thus one sheet as plate 266 would comprise one side of a loose sheet) and no plates 273 & 274 (one loose sheet) , no 275 (again would comprise one side of a sheet so one loose sheet), no 278, 279 (one loose sheet) , no 280 and 281 (one loose sheet). This would account for 5 loose sheets.
261-5 = 256 loose sheets present as per all previous copies handled and thus assume all present as issued.
