Sotheby's Publications by Philip Wilson Publishers Ltd, 1987 Book. As New. Hardcover. 1st Edition. English text; 2 Hardcover VOLUMES (with dust jackets) in slipcase.; 24.6 x 33.5 cm; 6.9 Kg; 1132 pages with colour and black and white illustrations throughout.; VOLUME I: 3.681 Kg, 608 pages; VOLUME II: 3.236 Kg, from page 609 to 1132.; Minor signs of wear on the slipcase and dust jackets. Interior as new.; It is surprising that so little of the great heritage of Japanese art in book form has been appreciated in the west, where attention has been largely confined to Ukyo-e prints. There has hitherto been no publication, in Japanese or in any non-Japanese language, that does justice to the art of the Japanese illustrated book. Jack Hiller, a wood engraver himself, has been a collector and connoisseur of the Japanese book for over thirty years. An unrivalled knowledge of the subject, and of the location of the rarer key works, has enabled him to present, for the first time, a balanced, appositely… Read More

Looks as new. Minor signs of wear on the slipcase.; "Among the 1932 acquisitions Mr. Baur restricted the choice partly to enamelled porcelains from Arita kilns and from Nabeshima, which found ready favour among Western collectors, adding also various later, nineteenth century porcelain wares which included in particular examples of Hirado, Kameyama and Kutani; and besides these he also sent a variety of enamelled pottery belonging to the Kyoto tradition, such as Kiyomizu, Awata and Banko. In 1933, the mixture remained the same - as indeed it was to do during the following years down to 1939 - with pieces by other potters working in similar styles, such… Read More

Looks as new. Minor signs of wear on the slipcase.; "These two volumes include the Japanese prints collected by Alfred Baur over the forty or so years from 1909 to 1949. This art form, is known to have exerted a decisive influence on the development of Western painting, offering first to Impressionist painters and then to the Nabil (to mention only France) an example of a new type of compositions that can serve as an alternative to the grand tradition inherited from the Renaissance. Van Gogh and Monet had assembled collections of prints that are still very carefully preserved and the writer Edmond de Goncourt, himself a well-informed collector, had… Read More

Éditions Chandeigne, Paris, 2015 Book. New. Hardcover. 1st Edition. French text; Hardcover (with dustjacket); 25.7 x 25 cm; 1.171 Kg; 175 pages with colour illustrations; Between 1543 - when Europeans arrived in Japan - and the 1640s when the country was closed to foreigners, the Japanese had regular contacts with the nanban-jin (Barbarians from the South). These merchants and missionaries, mainly from Portugal, were the source of a theme in Japonese art in the XVIth and XVIIth centuries. The paintings that decorated the nanban byobu (folding screens) depicted an extraordinary confrontation of civilizations ans its beauty is captivating. Through paintings primarily done buy the Kano school, the history of Portuguese arrival in Japan unfolds before our eyes. Sometimes critical, sometimes joyful and festival, the byobu reveal the beginning of Asia's Westernization. Nanban Folding Screen Masterpieces presents thirteen of these byobu accompanied by text about the fascinating history of the… Read More

Charles E. Tuttle Company, Rutland, Vermont, 1962 Book. Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition.

The dust jacket shows wear marks, namely signs of a removed sticker on the bottom of the spine. The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover. Good readable copy.; The manufacture of cloisonné enamels was introduced into China from the west in the fourteenth century onwards, an important industry, particularly devoted to the manufacture of ceremonial vessels for Buddhist temples. These became more imposing as time went on, and we find that in the Ch'ing dynasty it was practice of the emperors to present large sets of ritual vessels to temples under their patronage. But it is the early vessels of the fifteenth century that, like the porcelain and lacquer of the period, represent the highest achievements of the Ming and Ch'ing… Read More

Interior in very good condition. The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover.; The styles called chinoiserie were the European dream of the Orient, as escapist style of decoration that flourished in the courts and houses of seventeenth and eighteenth century Europe. The lighthearted fantasy of chinoiserie was one of jade pavilions, pleasure domes, ivory pagodas, delicate bridges over rushing rivers, and it is reflected in places like the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, England, the splendors of Versailles, and the exotic lacquered cabinets and the ceramics of England, Holland, and France. This Western idea of what oriental things were like - or ought to be like - is still evident today in fabrics and tableware… Read More

Minor signs of wear on the interior. The hinge is slightly loose, but the binding remains firm. The dust jacket has tears and minor chips and is now protected with a clearcover.; For us in the West, the category "Fine Arts" refers almost exclusively to painting and sculpture. The rest we relegate to the status of 'minor arts', crafts and curiosities. In China and Japan this has not been the case, and a famous Oriental painter has also been a calligrapher, a potter, a maker of lacquered objects, etc. And well-known Japanese potters occupy an exalted position in the history of Japanese arts as do the most important painters… Read More

Description:
Harvard University Asia Center, Cambridge (Massachusetts), 2004 Book. As New. Hardcover. 1st Edition. English text; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 23.5 x 16 cm; 0.7 kg; 317 pages with a few colour illustrations.; Used book with almost no signs of wear. As new. The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover.; Harvard East Asian Monographs, 232.; Since the inception of the noh drama six centuries ago, actors have resisted the notion that noh rests on natural talent alone. Correct performance, they claim, demands adherence to "traditions". Yet what constitutes noh's traditions and who can claim authority over them have been in dispute throughout noh's history.

Signs of wear on the hardcover cloth. Lacks the dust jacket.; "The Garrett Collection of Japanese Lacquer, inrõ, and netsuke offers an unusual research opportunity. As a virtually undisturbed first-generation collection, one of the few in the United States, one gains valuable insights into the collecting habits of one family. Also, light is shed on the availability of certain objects in the late nineteenth century, contemporary opinions and attributions to both the authorship and date of manufacture, as well as sense of the general level of knowledge held by Westerners about the Orient. The extensive holdings of mask netsuke alone afford one not only the opportunity to compare the nuances of the masks to one another, but also to their models, the… Read More
