Product Description

Product Description

There have been many books written on oriental art, both

specialised and general. Most of these have stressed the

historical aspect, paying little attention to the details of

individual pieces and concentrating mainly on the great

masterpieces and antiquities of the early schools.


Most collectors, however interested, will very rarely come

across any of these pieces, simply because the majority are in

museums, and should such objects come on to the open market

they will cost a considerable amount, normally far more than

the ordinary collector can afford to pay. Because of this, many

connoisseurs and collectors have been frustrated by the lack of

publications that tell them about objects that they personally

have. Most books illustrate only the very best-masterpieces in

their particular field. The same pieces seem to be illustrated in

book and the collector find that he is unable to add

?pen every to his knowledge about the objects he has in his collection.


I have deliberately written this book in a way which I hope

will clarify many of the questions that collectors continually

find themselves facing, and have tried to illustrate it, not with

great masterpieces, but with objects that the ordinary collector

will find that he can obtain, and may even, perhaps, have in his

possession. I have, therefore, not included illustrations of major

works. The collector, I am sure, will be able to find numerous

books where they are illustrated. I have concentrated on the

lesser antiquities and objects of the later periods. I have also

included information which, to my knowledge, is not generally

available to the collector.


I have tried to write this so that the information will be

easily available and can be quickly compared with the photo-

graphs and line drawings.


The book is not intended as a great scholarly work. I am sure

there are many others who can do this far better than I-but it

is intended for the collector who simply wants to enlarge his

knowledge of oriental art, and help him to understand better

the objects that he may have in his possession, and also for the

outsider' who may be interested but has yet to take the 'plunge'

may.
