Catalogue of an extremely choice exhibition showing 41 simply superb examples of Song ceramics. All but two of the works are held in the host museum. The two works from private collections are equally exceptional. One is a newly-discovered ru ware celadon bowl, here exhibited for the first time. The second privately-owned piece is a 12th century Ruzhou Donggou celadon bowl with handle. A good range of the major Song kilns. All pieces illustrated with excellent photography, in their entirety and with other plates showing close-up detail, including bases. Near dual texts in Japanese and English, including detailed descriptions.
