Focus on Asian Art Books
It is rare that I can write about a special book, a portfolio in this case, that comes from my own library and that I am offering for sale.
I have decided to part with my copy of O. du Sartel’s LA PORCELAIN DE CHINE-ORIGINES, FABRICATION, DECORS ET MARQUES, La Porcelain de Chine en Europe, Classement Chronologique, Imitations, ……, Paris MDCCCLXXXI (1881). The book is one of the earliest accounts in a non-Chinese language on Chinese ceramics. There are very good chromolithographs and plates in color and black and white. This is a portfolio with cloth/paper cover and ties.
