Overall in very good condition.; Comprise 3 volumes: Volume I: Text (281 pages), Volume 2: Painting (369 pages) and Volume III: Calligraphy (399 pages).; Research and translation by Keith Itoh and Lawrence Wu with Jean Schmitt and Caron Smith. Introductory commentary by James C. Y. Watt.; "The publication of this book is the culmination of decades of collecting and study by the author. Over the years, I have had the privilege of watching the collection grow and have enjoyed many evenings of viewing and discussion. I will remember the occasions when a new acquisition provoked both excitement and new insights into the work of an artist or the trend of an age. In forming this collection, Robert Ellsworth's unerring good taste and his early training in painting have stood him in a good stead; as the collection has grown, so have the understanding and perception of the collector. The outcome is much more than the accumulation of a large number of paintings and calligraphies. It is rather the revelation of the pattern of development of a whole era of artistic endeavor which has hitherto received scant attention from scholars and collectors. These volumes will thus serve both as a record of the collection and as a guide to the mainstream of the Chinese artistic tradition in the past two centuries." excerpt from the foreword by James C. Y. Watt, The Metropolitan Museum of Art..
