Ip Yee & Tam, Laurence C. S: CHINESE BAMBOO CARVING. Parts I & II. Hong Kong, 1978-82. 563, 351 pp. 348 b/w illustrations, 49 colour plates. 38 carver marks. 2 vols. 26x22 cm. Cloth.
Published to accompany an exhibition at the Hong Kong Museum of Art for the 3rd Festival of Asian Art. The bamboo displayed is from Dr. Ip Yee's well-known collection as well as other museum and private collections in Hong Kong and abroad. Part II contains an index of bamboo carvers, including pseudonyms and discussions on bamboo. Extremely scarce catalogue and a most valuable reference on a subject in which relatively little has been published in English, and the most extensive work to date on carved bamboo. Rarely seen as a set.
