Excellent and very well-illustrated work showing numerous examples of Yaozhou wares. This work chronologically covers the entire history of the kiln's output and is divided into sections by dynasty from the Tang onwards to the early 20th century Republic period. The highlights are, of course, the Song and Jin dynasties and there is a good selection of beautiful wares produced during these two periods. All the illustrated examples come from the collection of the Yaozhou Kiln Museum at Tongchuan in China's Shaanxi province. Illustrated throughout in colour, a good number of the ceramics in multiple views. Captions to plates in English. Main text in Chinese.
