Seller: versute (918) 100%, Location: Dartmouth, N.S., Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 283812684004 You are bidding on an exhibition catalogue entitled “TREASURES FROM THE BRONZE AGE OF CHINA: AN EXHIBITION FROM THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA,” which was published to accompany a gallery show of the same name which was put on by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City in 1980. It also toured to a number of other high profile museums across the USA, and was by all reports a great success. The show highlighted the work produced by artists and craftsmen in the bronze age of Chinese History, from as far back as 2000 BC through to the Terra Cotta Army artefacts of the Qin in 200 BC. The book is packed with details and history, and includes a long and informative Introduction, that puts these items in their historic and cultural context. The exhibit book has 105 full-colour plates, most of them full-page. Each item on exhibit has an accompanying write-up, giving more details of materials, dates, and such. The book would be of interest for anyone who appreciates ancient Chinese art and history, Asian bronze age archaeology, and so on. This book is particularly excellent, as these items were on tour only once, and have now returned to their storage in China. Thus, this exhibit is the only chance many of us will ever have to see these magnificent objects. The book is large format, measuring about 10 x 12 inches, and is printed on glossy pages. It is a softcover, and was published in New York City by the Metropolitan Museum of Art (although, it is long out of print). It is 192 pages long, and is used but in excellent condition. No writing, no stains or soiling, no missing or torn pages, and a tight spine & clean cover.
